Well as a general rule of thumb 1gal of seawater=roughly 8lbs. That does not factor in the weight of the tank or sand or rock or anything else.

I think only you could make the call as to whether or not you could put your tank on top of your canopy. If it were me I wouldn't do it but thats because I can't trust my canopy to hold that kind of weight. Not to mention that I'm thinking you'll wind up with a good deal of heat radiating up through the canopy.
