My brother is getting a 36 gallon soon. He wants to know how much it would weigh to make sure the floor can hold it up. He is using one 20lbs bag of sand. Thanks!

I usually go with 10 pounds per gallon. That way all avessories are taken into consideration.

A full tank weighs 300lbs + glass.

Similarly. I like the ten pounds a gallon rule, it accounts for a lot. Then add 20-50 pounds depending on your stand and where put things

It does but when you account for substrate, the tank, lid and filter your around 10 pounds per gallon.

But then you don't add anything else

Correct. The amount of substrate, filter and hood size correlates with tank size.
