125 on 1st floor of city bungalow...

network with your friends, and you'll propably find a reputable contractor/construction dude. He'll most likely know the limits on those structures, if not even fixed or replaced some.

then you'll have to figure out where the support beams in the basement are, then you will have some other variables to figure out such as the overall span of the floor joists, their size and spacing and if possible to see them what condition and type of wood are they made out of, most are usually pine but if the house is pretty old then there are a few different types of wood used back then

thanks alot guys, will do.... Dragonkeeper thats the problem, there really isnt any space for it along the outside walls and i really wouldnt want to block any windows with this thing. im thinking of putting it along a 'middle' wall i know for sure there are 2x4s downstairs along the side where i want to put the tank but i have no idea if they are there for middle of the floor support or just to mount the drywall downstairs...

A 125 should be good laying across the floor joists. Especially if it is against an outside wall.

I never try to make these assessments, but its a good idea to solicit opinions. Once I had a question on a tank stand with a 100g long acrylic and I got some good advice from Bob Fenner at WetWebmedia.com.  Below is a link to one of his Q&A pages specific to floor issues:

I am sure you will get some good responses from forum members. I would compare their collective response and pose the question to Bob and see if they jive.  I tend to double check, re-check, etc. before I place a tank with any uncertainty.  Good luck.

not sure where this would fit in but im getting ready to move from a basement apartment to a 1st floor in a bungalow, is anyone familiar with weight capacity of these old floors? the living room where this tank will go seems to have stable floors, nothing really moves as people walk but it will be going in a high transit area though... i know that the floor beams run north an south with the front of the house pointing west if this helps any... i plan on putting the tank so that is lays across as many floor beams as possible.. would extra 2x4s help in the basement where the basement walls are right underneath where the tank would be? i hope im not to confusing...
