Will a Floating Shelf Hold the Weight of Fish Tank

Postby Ank909 » Thu Feb 18, 2016 6:59 pm

e a 60cm X 23cm floating shelf with 6 X 4mm x 50mm screws with rawl plugs, the shelf is rated at holding 25kg, also 4 X L shape brackets underneath, each with 3 X 4mm X 50mm screws and rawl plugs each of these brackets are rated at holding 20kg, in to a brick wall, with a 20kg fish tank on, but thinking of upgrading the fish tank to a tank that would probably be weighing double this, would this be strong enough or would it be best to strengthen some more?
