    Had to move about a month ago. However long you think it will take add 3 hours at least.... And remember that aragonite is heavier than water.... Don't ask. Good luck and remember stay calm glass is fragile!!!

    Look at the bright side, if you move you take your tank with you, if I move, well, I'm stuffed

    thanks guys its a problem for me as just when i think im getting there i have to start all over again.. much better place than whee i am at the moment..better for my family and better ventilation for my tank... landlord is cool remote gates carrying water may be a small problem.. place is carpeted (bummer) right by the river and 5 minute walk away from my favourite fishing spot.

    up at the moment (02:07) am stressing about our cars parked outside due to an unwanted visitor we had lurking 2 days ago.. i actually havent slept since sunday for some reason.. running on empty... perhaps the move is what i need to settle again after our last breakin...

    i appreciate the offers to help and the well wishes... will keep you guys informed as to what happens.. shot
