no worries, 125 glass tanks are very strong. IMO they're not even heavy enough to necessitate the suction cup handles

I agree with Neilan. The cups aren't really needed on that tank. I used them on the 150 which weighed a lot. I also used them on the 120 though could have gotten away without. They do offer a nice handle to hang onto when moving a tank around but not something that you should run out and buy to use one time. The ones I have came from a member in my local club, he got them from Glasscages.com.

Thanks for the input. I appreciate it. I'll see how it goes. I'm a little squirt so my lifting capacity is somewhat limited. It was set up for me in the begining...but on a small platform only 6" high. Once I have it cleaned out I can get a better sense on what it is going to take to lift it up on a higher stand. The new stand is on 24" off the ground, so it shouldn't be too bad.

LOL! Good answer...I like that! I've been thinking of asking some of the MMA guys at the dojo to help. I'm sure they could be enticed for a six pack or two.

Well I'm not 100% sure yet but it appears that my anemone went through a change last night. You be the judge.

Whoa, congrats Ziggy! I know you were thinking about splitting it but had decided to leave it alone. Looks like you made the right choice.
