    Ok guys, the time has come for me to upgrade due to my rapid coral and fish growth.
    The tank was collected last night ie. 2/02/09.
    A huge thank you to Justin, Andreas, Scubaninja and Haley for all the help with the move.
    I will update this thread with more details and lots of pics soon. lighty will/should post pics of the great 6 hour move we experienced.

    Meks, Andreas & Scubs, What a night! Was better than a episode of 2 1/2 Men!

    Doing anything and learning from it makes is worth while, leason learnt on this "adventure" : If you live on the 11th floor and thinking of buying a tank, measure 1st, actually rather just build it in the house! but boy, what fun we had! made it worth while!

    will post some pics shortly!

    Ok the tank was cleaned up this morning by my handyman.
    The stand will be cut later on today so it can move into the flat and then it is going to have to re-welded.
