Moving 40g Long

Post by Welch4 » Wed Jun 14, 2017 6:34 pm

Hello All,

Been offline for a while. A little update. I have closed down my 20g Zenith T.V. tank, maintenance was too much of a pain and with the small access holes I was slowly ruining the cabinet. It has been tucked away for a restoration down the road. Also closed my 15g column in anticipation for my room remodel. I still have my 6.5g high tech planted bowfront in my office doing great and my 40g mixed reef GSP tank. Which brings me to the topic of this post. I am about to, as in right now, Transfer all my corals and most of my rock into a holding tank, move Franklin my beloved GSP to a small tank to be covered with a towel during the move so he stays calm. (He as been eating better and looks way healthier, thanks PP). Once 50% of the water is drained I will be shifting the tank over to a rolling toolchest that is topped with a frame i made last week. 3/4"plywood and 2x4s, the cart is rated for 500lbs so shouldn't be an issue for this 40g. I have new saltwater on hand. Wish me luck!

Holding tank is setup, the 20g from the t.v. tank all srcubbed down with two tiny koralias i had kicking around for some flow during the move. Setting up my rodi system to make another 5g to have on hand just in case. I have 20g of fresh saltwater in a brute and will not be flushing any old water until everything is moved to make sure i have enough water if god forbid something breaks. always better safe than sorry.

Here is the cart the tank will be on until the remodel is done, about 2 weeks.

And here is the coral holding tank.

He packed all his stuff and left, no note or anything... How rude!
