Talking Anyone want to help carry a tank tonight?

I have two strong helpers, but could use 1-2 more to help carry in a 360 gallon tank. I have dollies to move from car to house, but need at least 4 people to help lift. If you have time between 7-8 tonight, I live in Natomas. I can repay with frags or ??

Thanks!

If I was taking one of the kids I'd cancel and be over in a minute but I've invited a friend and they probably wouldn't understand just how thrilling tank moving can be.
Anyway......good luck and maybe I'll stop by this weekend to check it out.

Man Kim, if I'd known you guys were rotozipping holes, I could have brought over my drill and holesaws..
No wonder it took so long

That must have been crazy to watch!!

Awesome Jeremy! Thanks for posting those. I guess I will have to start a build thread

Yeah, I didn't know he was going to rotozip either, but I had ordered sch. 80 bulkheads and he didn't have a hole saw large enough. I should have thought of you Steve, you are always drilling holes for everyone. It actually did scare me - I had to walk away a couple of times!

This will be a reef with lots of fishes!

Thanks again everyone - and all of you are more than welcome to come and help with the plumbing this weekend


Kenny - I wish I had a budget! I am going to add what I have and hope for the best.

I got the stand from Acrylic Tank Manufacturers out of Las Vegas. They did a really great job.

I truly agree with the wonderful job that they did on the stand. I've seen it in person and was very impressed with the welding and the powder coating that was done. A+

I was curious about that stand. So when you set up your sump and all its goodies you can see it all under there?
