I currently have a 65 gallon aquarium that is doing well. I would like to upgrade to a 120/125 but am not sure if the weight of it can be supported by the floor. I live in a townhome and my aquarium is station in my living along an inside wall which is actually the dividing wall between us and the neighbours. The aquarium will be placed on the main floor with an unfinished basement underneath. the aquarium will be running perpendicular to the floor joists rather than running parallel with them so when the aquarium is stationed, it will cover across quite a few of the joists.
When doing the calculations regarding the pounds per square foot on the floor when the tank is full I discovered that the 120 gallon aquariums is lighter than the 90 gallon by about 20-30lbs.
I am looking at 120 gal 5' long aquarium.

I made this background for my 120 gallon aquarium. It was actually pretty easy to make but it was very time consuming and messy. I'd definitely do it again though! It was a lot cheaper than buying a custom made background and you can make it exactly how you want it. This instructable will walk you through how to make one of these backgrounds. You can adapt this to any size tank. The materials I used are fish safe. ***Note: This is only for FRESHWATER aquarium use!!!Fish tank video of my 120 Gallon Mixed Aquarium. This tank houses many species of fish and I couldn't get them all into this video.
Most fish in this aquarium have been with me for 5 years and have gotten huge. There is a very good balance between the Cichlids, Barbs, Silver Dollars, Plecos, Clown Loaches and more.
I feed this tank a mix of different staple fish foods like flake and pellets. Aggression is very well balanced in the tank and my female dovii keeps everyone under control.

He has a beautiful 120-gallon rimless aquarium that, at just four months old, holds promise for great things to come! Note: Click on any picture for a larger view. The aquarium is a glass Oceanic 120, 48x24x24 inches. The sump is located in my basement, both to reduce mechanical noises and to keep temperatures cooler in the summer. Other than one or two LPS specimens, all corals were grown from small frags. The sump is a 75 gallon stock tank with a plexiglass cover. I try to keep systems as simple as possible, and the set-up features little automation.
