    Wouldn't it be great if there was a supporting member (or service) that would bring me a tank from San Jose up to Kensington. Scuzy has a tank that I want but am not going to go get and he can't deliver. So, if there is anyone that can bring me the tank ( 72x36) and stand I'll compensate with some form of reef creature.
    Scuzy, my apologies in advance for not mentioning this earlier, but the idea just came to mind.

    I can, what size is the tank? i'd have to measure the car to see if it will fit. i'm going to santa cruz this weekend and might bring it up for you.

    Then they could pick up the two tanks I have for you in my car at the same time!

    It probably won't fit in a car but a child molester van would work :)

    oh shit yes, this wont even fit my car, but maybe roof rack lol. but even with a borrowed LX 470 it wont fit in the back with back seats fold down. that tank is just too damn long.

    I can say for a fact that a 3 foot wide aquarium will not fit in a Toyota Prius simply due to the way the bottom of the hatchback flares inward... I say this because I remember driving on the freeway with a 4' x 3' x 2' aquarium partially sticking out the back of my car with rope holding the hatchback partially down (still about 2 feet higher than the roof) one early morning many years ago :D
    That said, I did manage to get a Jacuzzi tub in the back of that car perfectly fine :)

    And you can swing by my place and pick up the halide bulbs?

    hey the light came with a working halide bulb, so I'm keeping on using this until I can find a better LED light, this thing is kicking my electricity bill to another level.

    My CUV is just shy 6" from fitting that tank lengthwise. Looking at the cargo dimensions of the LX470, it should be able to swallow that sucker up with the 2nd row seat folded down and the 3rd row removed. ;)

    Or call a few guys that list pickup and delivery service on Craigslist. Or Taskrabbit.

    I've got a truck but no time. Plus @Kensington Reefer, you're so far away from me (1-1/2 hours). I have wanted to see your setup though.
