I know fully empty it took about 3-4 people to carry it. I have a moving dolly so I can get away with 3 people helping.

You are a fortunate hobbyist, being able to upgrade from an already large 225 gallon to 600 gallon

I guess its just being in the right place at the right time. As I stated earlier, I am very lucky.

Me too. If it all goes well it might be one of the largest DIY led projects out there.

Everything thats dry goods is 20% of excluding dog food and some other stuff. I think in my honest opinion the live animals and goods will probably go on sale in the beginning of October but if its earlier I will let you know.

Update!!!!!!!

Looks like the tank will be delivered this weekend(crossing fingers and toes). I will then build the top part of the stand so I know where to place the vertical beams after drilling for the closed loop. Once that is finished I will be sanding the scratches, mostly minor ones, and buffing to hopefully make it look like it was just built.

They won't let me move it because of my injury to my back. I would love to help you but I'll be taking a risk on my injury.

Thank you. I hope the move will go smoothly too. I've been watching your build as well. Gives me some ideas I might use with your permission.
