Your bosses tanks volume works out at 177 gallons. Allow a few gallons for airspace at the top and he is probably looking at 170 gallons minimum. In other words 1700 pounds or 121 stone plus the weight of the aquarium and all its ancillary equipment. Say another couple of stone. It is a lot of weight to support and a lot of water if something goes wrong.

I've been in the building game for over 25 years...............steel beams??????????

 

Gotta be a Scot thing. :)

A four foot tank full of water ain't as heavy as it sounds.

 

Think of a twenty stone bloke, wouldn't you let him in your house in case he falls through the floor???????? :rolleyes:

:)

I think he is pushing the boat out, it certainly exceeds normal domestic suspended floor loadings, he could end up having a shower in the room below. I will check it out tomorrow and post loadings for anyone interested.

 

His shower seems to be an entertainment room so he could well be spending some time in there :rolleyes::D I guess he has been watching one or two of these tv programs showing dream homes being developed. I have seen aquariums used in bathroom walls before but as stated here not 100% suitable.

 

However I think this is the least of his problems.

 

If he purchased this aquarium direct from the manufacturer water quality etc would not be an issue as far as they are concerned, some times buying cheap wholesale rather than retail can lead to all sorts of problems if your new to fish keeping, thats why so many end up on Ebay.


I fish, I catches a few, I lose a few, BUT I enjoys. Anglers Trust PM

just spoke to them about it, they seem to have it all very well thought out. to feed the fish they have a trap door in the room above. the guy who fitted it into the wall i know he knows about weight so i think its preyt much well covered, its just fish maintenance they need to know about.

 

they keep trying to quiz me, one of which "why does a fish float upside down when its dead" i shot him right down as he thought i would not beable to answer it
