I was selling my tank (small 72 gallon bowed) in this picture in about an hour (person called me from craigslist and wanted it fast), so I had a couple of friends come over to help me. We came with the idea of a sump pump and ran the garden hose out of my bedroom window into the back yard. worked/works great, fast and I didn't have to buy anything!
was replaced with a 150 gl regular, then I sold that (used the sump pump again and worked great), because I missed the bowed look, and got a 155 bowed.
you may want to hold it up off the floor glass like a 1/2" or so it, so it doesn't vibrate the glass.
my buddies that helped.
