OK i have a 55G long and i was wondering about how much it would weigh with 50LBS of sand and 30LBS of decor. after i added the water? is there a calculator for that? so im assuming after the sand & decor there would be about 45-48 gallons of water in there? am i close??

Yeah I would say you are pretty close. Whether you figure there is 45 or 50 gallons still in the tank the weight will be somewhere between 550-600lbs.

Yeah that would definitely work!
As far as what you are using it sounds pretty stout. Aslong as the framing is sturdy enough to support the weight you should be good. GL :thumb:
