"Renovation Guide For Your HDB Flat\What You Need To Know?\Guidelines for Building Work
Fish Tank "



Can I install any household item heavier than 150 kg/m2 [such as a safe exceeding 150 kg] in my flat?

HDB flats are designed with an imposed load of 150 kg/m2. This is a requirement under the Building Control Act and Regulations for residential occupancy class.

It is safe for residents to place most general household items, such as furniture, appliances, television, washing machine, refrigerator, piano, fitness equipment, etc, including common standard-sized fish tank/s in their flat as these items are not concentrated in one location and their weight will not affect the uniformly maximum distributed load of 150 kg/m2.

However, if you intend to place unusually heavy items [such as safe exceeding 150 kg or a large-breeding aquarium-size fish tank] that exceed the allowable weight or size limit, you must get approval from HDB before installing these items. You will need to submit your application to the HDB Branch Office managing your flat, stating the size, type, weight and location of the fish tank ( . Alternatively, you can submit your application using the email facility.




Larger fish tank supported on a four legged rack or cabinet where the total weight of the fish tanks (inclusive of water, sand and accessories) exceeds 600kg [for example, a two-tier fish tank measuring 4'0" x 18" x 18" (1.2m x 0.5m x 0.5m), or larger] Flat owner is to submit an application to the HDB Branch Office managing their flat, stating the size, type, weight and location of the fish tank (see sample copy). Alternatively, you can submit your application using the email facility.

got this info from a bro posted in aro club...it states that a single tier 4ft x 18" x 18" water weight is approx. 300kg, this dun need approval.

but a double tier 4ft x 18" x 18" will required an approval cos the water weight will be double. I guess our common 4x2x2 should be lighter than a double tier 4ft x 18" x 18"

5 x 2 x 2 = 700 litres of water = 700kg.
The glass weighs 125 kg (according to the info in this thread)

Total already 825 kg.
Canister, lights, heater, air pump, gravel ... how many kg ?

Fish don't bother to count la... insignificant weight compared to the above !!
