Yesterday I got some friends together to lift the tank on to the stand. The estimated weight of the tank is 450lbs and not an easy lift for sure. To make it even more difficult we had to put the tank up at an angle in order to clear the garage door rail.
First I dragged the pallet and tank out of the garage with the golf cart and spun the tank around and let the edges hang off so we could grab it.
i wasn't able to take pictures while lifting so just imagine six sweaty guys heev hoing the tank to here:
Here's where we added the sand, that is 360lbs. of Tropic Eden Reef Flake
Then we re leveled it and installed the water proof barrier that should have been installed already
Here is the tank from the other side, lots of work left to do
Sorry for the grainy indoor pictures, I didn't turn on the flash on the iPhone.
