Sorry if this is the wrong section.
I'm buying two tanks and a stand off of craigslist.
I checked them out Tuesday night and they both had water and fish in them. Top tank is a 150 gallon that's not drilled glass tank that's 72x20x24 and the bottom is a 50 gallon drilled acrylic tank that he listed the dimenstions on but I can't remember them right now.
He drained them last night and washed all the gravel and put it in bags, disassembled all the plumbing and cleaned it all up for me. I'm supposed to go pick it up this afternoon, and I conned my brother into bringing his vehicle as well since it's about a 40 minute drive that I don't want to have to make twice. I have a truck with a bed/tailgate that's long enough to hold the bigger tank and maybe the stand. I've got some ratchet straps to tie it down, and some towels/rags that I was going to try to pad the truck bed and any places where the tank/stand/straps might be touching in my truck bed. I've moved other tanks before, but nothing this big, do you guys have any suggestions on how to move it safely?
