I have a 55 gallon fish tank.
55 gallons @ 8lbs/gal. ~440lbs
2 lbs/gal of sand ~110lbs
wood stand ~60-80lbs
wood tank top/lights ~40-50lbs
5'6" tall and slightly top heavy.
The tank rocks, ever so slightly, because the nicest spot to put the tank is along the floor joists, not across them. Hey, it holds.
Now, toddlers have the strength of Bam Bam.
I fear a crash, the sound of rushing water and the lack of a cry from my child.
How can I best anchor this to the wall?
Metal strapping anchored to studs?
Nylon webbing wrapped around the tank and anchored to studs?
