  1. Default Transporting a very large aquarium.

    Hi this is my first post.

    I reciently aquired a very large aquarium. I suppose its about 360 gallons. I dont think that there is any way for me to transport it other than by dismanteling it. Does anyone have any pointers on how to go about taking this monster apart and then reassembling it?

    Thanks

    You dont necessarely have to dismantel it. I have transported tanks of that size. All you need is a few guys and a flat area on a trailer to but it on. A piece of cloth between the floor and the tank is also good.

    Thanks that size are rather tough, they have to be to cope with the water.
    Do as I say. Not as I do.

    Thanks for the quick response. Although I do have the people availble to move it in one piece, the doorway into the room that it is going to be set up requres it to go in in pieces.

    Is there anything that I need to know before I go about this? Or is it as self explanitory as peel away the trim, cut through and clean off the adhesive and then just add clear caulk and new trim for the reassembly?

    And I am not planning on filling it all the way up with water. I hope to make a terrarium out of it. With both fish and other animals

    A few beers. That will get it moved. I say get at least 4 big guys to help move it. I have a 180g and I'd say it probably weighs 400lbs empty. If I lived nearby I'd help move it. That's the problem with the world today, u can't get anyone to help do anything. I try to help as much as I can that way the one day I need help, hopefully it comes around full circle. Seriously, AC is full of some great people! I'm sure you could find a few people in your area on here that would be willing to help, have a few beers, and talk fish. Sounds dorky, but not much different than what we do on here.

    I'm sorry, I misread. I see you do have people to help move it. That's a bummer if it has to be taken apart to get it into the room. I think it's always scary doing that. I've done it before, but everytime then and in the future, does not keep you livin on edge hoping a leak doesn't spring.
