Frequently Asked Questions
Due to the thick glass used in their construction, EA aquariums are heavy, even when empty.
Ensure that sufficient people are available to carry the aquariums and cabinets safely when they are delivered. The 1800 models will need six to eight people, and are extremely heavy.
Every EA aquarium should be placed on a strong (ideally concrete,) level floor. EA cabinets have been extensively weight tested, but uneven floors will cause stress on any cabinet and aquarium and should be avoided. Wonky cabinet doors can often be a sign of an uneven floor, as cabinet doors are adjusted correctly on a level floor at the point of manufacture. Ensure that wooden floors and joists are capable of holding the weight of a filled aquarium, with water, rocks and substrate.
The weights of aquariums and cabinets are listed below:

nett water (kg)
