to be absolutely sure, you might want to have a contractor come out and take a look at your floor supports. normally its fine, but to be sure is a good idea. a hole in the floor and loads of water damage, (not to mention the devistating effects something like that would have on the animals in your tank) are def. not fun. better safe than sorry

as for the bottom of the tank, i have put rocks in my tank before, actually over 200 lbs of rock, and it was fine. people put live rock in their aquariums all the time and it works out. i would just be careful to distribute the weight evenly so that its not all concentrated to one side of the tank (although i have dont this too, with no bad results). you should be fine, but if you are really worried, you can purchage a custom made cabinet with extra supports.
