    150 Gallon tank!!

    Good Evening All!!

    I might have the chance to purchase a complete 150 gallon setup for $125.00. The thing that I worry most about is weight. I figured in the weight of the stand, the tank, assessories, water and deco to be approximately 1800 to 2000 pounds. My house is 4 stories-basement, first floor, second floor and attic. It is a Victorian built in 1887. The basement had a dirt floor until about 30 years ago. It has those giant beams and support that they don't use anymore and a rock foundation. If I get the tank, I plan on putting it on an outside wall on the first floor. Do you guys or gals think that I would have any issues with my house and floor supporting a tank that size? Anybody have a similar setup in similar type of house? Is there anything special that I should do before I set something like that up? Thank you in advance for any help!

    consists either of a suggested explanation for an observable phenomenon or of a reasoned proposal predicting a possible causal correlation among multiple phenomena.
