Finally after much silence....a teaser.
solid blocking, 6x6 beams and 3 6x6 columns, per structural engineer's recommendation.
To the left, in that little closet like space, there is one more beam/post
Quick pick of the move. Had to take it up to the front door which is above be garage up some rather steep deck stairs. Took a breather on the landing halfway up to rest.
And you lifted that tank all by yourself I bet! That's why the weight lifting belt. Grabbed those suction cups and moved it like a boss!!!
Definitely not by myself that thing must weight at least 300 lbs
Congrats , been along time. Last time I saw you it was at your apt in San Mateo
Its been a while since Ive been really excited about my tanks but i think its coming back. Between the house hunting and generally being busy i missed some parameters and had a major crash resulting in an almost complete loss of SPS. A tad disappointing to say the least, but on the bright side, it'll make moving the 40g into the new tank that much easier.
Here's the current timeline for the 130:
We're having our floors refinished this week, and we are moving into the house officially this weekend, so i will start filling the tank next week.
Today I am combining the 28 Biocube we have with the 40g and we will relocate the 40g the following weekend and it'll live temporarily in the basement until the 130 is cycled.
Update: near final stand placement. Also have an electrician coming on Friday to install two sets of outlets, each one on a separate breaker. Conveniently one of the electrical panels is in the same room, on the same wall.
Will the tank interfere with access to that panel?
Love your optimistic timeline. It's going to be a lovely tank!!
Beautiful looking tank and sump setup. Is that a Trigger Systems Tideline? I can't tell if it's the 36 or 48.
Haha, yea my timelines got thrown out of the window, but we'll be taking this slow. I hope to start filling it this coming weekend, and we will only start stocking it a few weeks after that.
Yea, its the 36 inch tideline.
Awesome, I think you'll be very happy with it. I have a Tideline 30 and it's been great over the last year.
Im just excited to have a built for purpose sump. having a regular tank converted into a sump is a mess.
Some noteworthy updates over the weekend.
The 40g is now in my new house in the basement. After the 130 is up, I'll use this as a quarantine tank.
On that note 130 is finally going up on the stand tomorrow. Wahoo!
We have water!
