Hi all,

We are thinking about moving abroad this year/early next year. (or whenever we can go).
I have a bunch of photo's etc of my tank. I've never really made videos. So I thought - well last chance before I sell everything....

Not sure how to upload my videos from youtube.
But here is a link of the uploaded video.

Hopefully my quality of videos will improve as I play a bit more with the software, and that my recording skills will get better.

Hi,
Another quick video on the full tank...
(think it's a bit better quality)



I'm looking at selling the setup, but have NO IDEA on what to ask for it.
My other alternative is to take the tank with me to NZ. Have anyone shipped a big tank like this before? Is it worth it?

@crispin shipped his tank to Norway successfully. I think you need to weigh up the shipping costs compared to local costs to buy a new tank over there.

@Raven suppose you don't have any aiptasia problem. Nice tank. I think it will be cheaper to buy a tank on that side, especially with the added stress if its going to arrive in one piece. If you want I will hold on to your tank till when you come back one day :whistling:.

Actually i shipped several tanks:) If you have a container going and pack the tank in its own crate, and then use the empty space of the tank to pack soft things (clothes, bedding etc) it works out basically free. Although I would suggest getting onto a NZ reefing forum and seeing what the cost ofa second hand tank is there, and then just shipping the equipment you have to run the tank. I personally would buy a tank in the country i was travelling too (if it wasnt Norway!)

Thanks - and thanks...

But no - I don't have any aptiasia in the display tank. But I do see they started to pop-up in the sump.

Its really sad to think that I might need to sell this setup. Some of the fish and corals in this tank is now with me for +-4-5 years. And the tank really only started to mature now. The diversity of critters is just amazing!

Thanks... Will take a look.
Did you need some sort of clearance certificate that the tank is clean etc?
So that you don't introduce some sort of viruses etc in the new country?
