    after months of planning,saving,spending,finally my tank was ready,went to idol marine yesterday to collect my tank,was very excited,the wait was finally over.we got the tank in the bakkie and i was on my way home,reached home and then came the task of getting the tank in the house,managed to get about five people from the complex i stay in to help me carry the tank(1.5mx1mx600mm-starfire) which was quiet heavy,got it off the bakkie,while carrying it,one idiot decides to leave his end,tank fell,and the long side glass broke,i could'nt belive my eyes,my heart sank to my knees,still depressed.tank gone back to IM to get repaired.

    So sorry to hear dude - but chin up - it will get sorted - just make sure not to use to same idiot again! Is there no way to have the tank on its stand from the bakkie to inside the house then when tired just put it down to rest or get yourself one of those cheap single foam mattresses - put it on the mattress and then move it in so that you could put it down anytime when "the idiot" is tired!

    Then your best bet would be a mattress! When we bought my tank years ago from Hibberdene the lady taught us that trick and she was building tanks and delivering them for 30 years already - never lost a tank!

    No problem - also try to get the idiot to give moral support like a cheerleader only - no physical help!

    I moved my sump 150x60x50, 10mm glass alone from one room through living room, passage, kitchen, two stairs down to the outside.
    I did it alone, because I don´t trust people carrying heavy stuff.
    With the use of two thick blanckets, my back was not even sore.
