43G tank in 2nd floor apartment?

Recommended Posts

Wondering what you guys think of this? I live on the second floor of an old apartment building. It was built in 1959. Currently I have a 20G and id like to put the new tank in the same spot. It is currently next to a wall that as far as I can tell I think it is structural as it separates me from other apartment and downstairs as same wall. But when I leveled the current tank the wall side of the tank was lower than the front. Not sure what that means as I read about the opposite from sagging wood supports. 

 

Getting a good deal on a assembled redsea reefer 170 which I assume will be heavier with the sump and the smaller footprint.

It won't be a problem unless the floor is rotted. Older buildings generally have better stronger/construction.

Many floors aren't perfectly level for many reasons, even natural shifting. 

 

Many of us have to level our stands with shims
