View Full Version : ***VERY Important***

Is it possible to place a 40 gallon breeder tank on the second floor of a house beside an existing 20 gallon tank and 15 gallon tank. Obviously the 40 G will be placed along the wall in the corner. The room it will be residing in also has a structured wall below it approximately 5-6 feet from the wall the tanks will be above. The floors are constructed of engineered joists at 16-18 inches apart. The floor the stands will be sitting on is carpetted.

So the question is, does anyone see any forseeable problems before I go and do this. If not, I leave the tank where it sits on the main floor and start cleaning the basement and build a room for my tanks (which by the way will be a b*&#h). Any input will be greatly appreciated.

Assuming the floor is structurally solid, you shouldn't have any trouble.

Structure Guy had an excellent thread on this topic. I'll see if I can dig it up.
