    So sorry I haven't been around, just been super busy. So good/bad news. After 17 years at the same job, I may be making a switch soon. I haven't signed the offer letter, going to give my self the weekend to make sure. The office tank gets to come with me, but that means after only being up for a month it will be torn down and relocated. Plants are super happy and I wondering if I should just drain it and leave the substrate in with plants rooted. Or should I completely clean it out and uproot the plants?

    Congrats on the new job? Maybe. lol I don't have much knowledge of planted tanks, but I would think that leaving them rooted would be the best option.

    Thanks and yeah it should be congrats. I think it's going to be a good job and I can get back to working for a locally owned business. The corporation I work for now has shown no interest in growing our company and the new place is growing at a good pace. I'll be third down on organization chart and will be in a great spot in an up and coming company.

    Hey, congrats on the new opportunity...I would drain the tank down to an inch or two of water, leaves the plants/deco like it is. and move it (carefully) that way...how far from your present work site to your home?

    It's about a 15 min drive from the office to the house, but the tank will be going to the new office. I told them that was a stipulation, the new office tank came with me lol. The new office is about a 20 min drive from the old one so it should be good to leave everything in. Luckly there are some good people at the old job that will baby sit the tank for about a week until I get ready to come get it. I will probably have to build a new stand, since the current three legged one using the desk may not work.

    This would work but you would need to take additional precautions since with the additional weight, there would be more pressure on the tank during the move.

    Congrats on your new opportunity!

    Are you considering a sheet of plywood under it for the move? Just thinking it would help you avoid any inadvertent twists.

    I'd guess that you could drain it down to the substrate - or very close, anyhow - for that short of a duration without harming your plants. It would be my thought to attempt to get as much weight out as possible.

    I hadn’t thought about transporting on plywood, that’s a smart thought. I wouldn’t care I just hate to uproot the plants already.

    Well it's all official has of a few days ago. The 24th will be my last day at this job. I have had the same job since high school, 17.5 years and it's the only job I've had as an adult. I'm not even sure what it's like to not work here so I'm nervous but excited. The guys at the shop are going to take care of the tank for a week while I get into the new job and figure out what I need to do for the tank in the new office. I got to thinking about it, and I may not have a choice but to uproot the plants. I scaped this tank to be in a corner and if the new office makes it view able from 3 sides I may need to scape it differently. I guess I'll find out soon.
