Wounderin were I should place my new 75 gallon I live in a old historical building in a loft. I hav a 40 gallon. On a wall that's not a support all but I have a post in my loft that is close to a wall that I want to put my new 75 gallon on and this wall isn't a outward facein wall eitherbut my question is will that support beam be enough to support the tank ??

Hard question to answer without seeing the building layout in person.
I'd likely have someone come out and take a look for me.
You'll be looking to support around 850 pounds give or take.

850 doesn't include the stand or hood... or rocks, by the way. That's just the tank and water.

I'd find a good architect/your building's blueprints to be sure.

+1 On the finding an architect or a structural engineer. Especially on older buildings, and in lofts.
