    How to move large tank

    Hey guys, I’m renovating my garage so I need to move my tank about 10 feet. Has anyone done something similar? Does anyone have any creative solutions that wouldn’t involve breaking down the tank??AAC8D063-768C-4F11-8935-8764FD3EE2C3.jpgFF72B0C3-EF03-4146-BFCF-CF05C131429A.jpg

    Nice set up! I wouldn’t risk doing anything novel... too much risk... best to empty it and move... just my two cents...

    Super nice tank! I haven't but this is what I would do.. empty as much water in buckets as you can..save the water so you can put it back. Put all your fishes in a temporary tank.

    Invite 4 friends over for a BBQ and beer and ask them to move it.

    I would only put about 30% original water back. Save some, but treat the rest as a large water change.

    Save everythinf yoou can in a 55 gallon BRUTE trash can from home depot, and move it the old fashioned way.

    moving big tank with water in it is very risky. Transfer water to other container like 55 gallon brute, and do some water change
