It was kind of a happy coincidence...my neighbor owns a lumber yard so he was able to put it the garage first, then yesterday he used the fork lift with 10ft extension fork to maneuver it through my basement window to the stand.. it was fricken slick!You know you have it bad when the tank is delivered in a semi and takes a forklift to get it to the house. Looks great in place.
Well Leslie. It did happen.@Diesel here is an update WITH pics...it DID happen!
So to sum up the big tank is up and running...few things occurred during set up.
1.) Tank is ACTUALLY 380-400 gal. Discovered as we filled it...200 gal in we only had her half full and no water in the sump.
2.) I made the decision to add an Apex system
3.) Randomly decided to use a "junk" storage closet to create an equipment room. Poor Doug (LFS guy) had everything in the tank stand and THEN his wife and I made the executive decision...oops.
And now...the pics...
It is not pristine and white BUT it is way better than crawling under the stand!
This is Jen, from my FS...look at all the beautiful storage space I have now!
Some of the plumbing, tank set up etc...
This is me aquascaping, gives some scale to the tank!
When the lights come on I will add a pic with the nice clear water, it is still a bit hazy. I have a ton more sand to yet!
