Can I Climb Into My (drained) 130-gallon Aquarium? Question

    I need to reseal my 130-gallon glass aquarium and it would be much much easier to do this if I was able to climb inside.

    I know that once it is filled it will hold a lot more weight than me, but I would worry about creating pressure points and cracking the bottom glass. I am not small. Looks like it's 5/8" thick. I don't know whether it is tempered or not.

    What do you guys think?

    Probably not a good idea.

    I don't think so... glass aquariums usually have a rim, not all the surface is resting on the stand. If it is on a solid, completely flat surface, then maybe...

    One thought... what if you would place it on the floor and turn it on one of its longer sides (perhaps the back)? Then, carefully, by not leaning on the panels, you may reach the corners...
