Hi TransporterThe only thing I see that would concern me, as of right now, is the fact the on the stand the only thing supporting the tank is a dozen or so nails. Now dont take my word as gospel or anything because I know nothing about structural engineering, but it would make me uneasy trusting my 75g to a few nails. I would put a 2x2 under each inside corner for peace of mind.
On another note, the furthest i have ever moved like that is about 2 hours (~100 miles). My nerves were shot after that drive with he fish, every little bump in the road, other drivers (almost got T-boned), etc. So I dont envy you on that part. Either way, best of luck to you on your brave, and slightly insane decision ! Definitely following this one =)
Yes, I was hoping to do that when I get back down to Fl. My friends that are helping me with watching the tank as it cycles are not reefers so its difficult to ask them to do it.As it turns out, the majority of the noise coming from the sump tank is from the sicce return pump because the plumbing is too short and needs to be exteneded. Right now it is sitting on top of a plastic container which is unstable and adds to the vibration. The hardest part thus far, is being so far away and depending on others to do what I need to do..Is there any way to combine the old with the new to make 1 good piece ? Just a thought in case you don't feel like paying return shipping...
