    i have moved to south florida, and the company i work for is breaking down a fish store and i have snagged a pet store 3 tall fish tank pod two tanks are 70 gallons and one is 90 gallons. that's about 2047LBS of water no to mention the glass so about 2150lbs. i live on a second floor now but the building is solid for hurricane's and the floor is solid concrete(on the second floor) . the tank will be placed up against the wall which is the exterior wall of the building.

    will my floors hold?

    It might be best to have a qualified builder / home inspector / engineer take a look at your home and offer you their professional opinion. This is something that you most likely have to actually see and have some experience in to be able to know if you can place that much weight on a smaller area of a second floor.

    Better safe than sorry
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    I'm actually seeing it as heavier than mentioned. A 70 gallon (with water) is 800 lbs. 90 gallons (with water) is 1050. That's 2650 without rocks, substrate or the tank frames. If this is a rental, I don't see a landlord approving of that at all.

    ABSOLUTELY!
    Solid concrete, hurricane resistant, I would not worry whatsoever.
