I would move the tank the couple of inches. I move my 125 just the other day it's a pain but just drain as much water as you can into a new garbage can and then when your done pump it back into the tank

Thxs I might make my own diy overflow anyways I like the Idea
I had a question about my return pump it's 1200 gph maxi jet and it's going in a 30 gallon sump with 72 gallon display would the return pump be to strong or will it be ok?

Lay next to the tank on your side. put your feet against the wall and both hands on the tank. Push with your feet. You will be surprised how easy it slides out.
Repeat on the other side.
