Also get the house plans (if possible) and see how much the floor support can take in weight. Ideal tank is 120 gallon...

once I can get my rodbuilding shop in the basement Ill pull out a few wood strips to see the subfloor. That will be a outside wall ,house is 2 fam brick but built in the 60s my 40 is on the opposite wall. I had a 65 fowlr tank there years ago. I think I can get away with a 90. I think 120 is pushing it. I now own the house with my gf and her mom in the down stairs apt. since she lives down stairs she kinda has to agree she hates fish tanks and is old school german she thinks everything is gonna be a disaster lol.

I'm pretty sure if you can get what the floor support is (for example 2x12 ect. someone here can tell you what is the most you can have on that floor.) If you put the tank across the beams not going with it, i think you will be fine for the most part. But find out please
