Weight of Water

Water weights a remarkable and deceptive amount.

So a small 25 Litres (6.6 US G.) tank of water weighs 25 Kg or 55 lbs, and that's before you take into account the weight of the tank, ornaments and equipment you put in it.

In a typical 4 foot tank, say ~250 Litres (66 US G.), that water will weigh in at 250Kg or 555 lbs (39 stone)!

This is why you must be careful that the piece of furniture you place the tank upon can take the weight. With large tanks you must also ensure that the floor can take the weight.
