Hey, guys so my father in law was over this week and was in awe of my fish room/ office. He was in the hobby for years and wants to get back into it. The in-laws recently moved into a smaller house. Now this isn't exactly a fish related question, but I am scared that the floor is not going to be able to hold a 75-125 gallon tank. He asked me to be in charge of getting it all set up for him etc. Does anyone know how to test the floor or of any telltale ways to know if the floor can support this kind of weight? Would placing it against a load-bearing wall help if I could find that? There is a crawl space basement below them and it is a pretty old building (plaster walls) I was thinking of trying to find someone who could check out the house, but I don't even know the kind of person to ask. The last thing I need in my life is the fish tank I built for my father in law to break his new home. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
