How Much Weight Can My Floor Hold?

AxolotlAquarist

I have no idea of the inner workings of my floor, all I know is that I want my aquarium to go in my bedroom, which is the top floor of a three-story house. How much weight can the standard home floor bear? Ideally I'd like 40 gallons, plus the stand.

Anything under 75 gallons I wouldn't even think twice about.

I personally wouldnt worry. I have a 45, 30, 20 long, and 5 all in the same room on the 2nd story of my 60 year old house. you should be just fine lol.

40 gallons of water is roughly 400 pounds all included. That's about the weight of two people. If your floor can hold two people side by side with all their weight being exerted over their small footprint, it should have no problem supporting the distruted weight of a 40.
