I am off to build my second reef tank and here i start documenting this..
Right now Table/stand/cabinet is ordered, tank is yet to be made on top of it... so nothing has been started yet. But i have been having some worries regarding its weight.
Please refer to the below image (drawn in mspaint so not that awesome looking
my worry is whether the beam C will be able to bear the weight of the tank which probably will be around 1.5 ton. the beams A, B and C are all about 18" wide. but since there is no wall below cantilever beam C, I am rather worried if it might collapse. Its on 3rd floor so i might kill some people below if the accident ever happens.. If there are any architect in the forum please do suggest.
