Congrats! I bet it feels good to get them all back up and running in your new home! I absolutely hate moving. I won't be going anywhere for another 29 years though. LOL

I'd get an engineer in there to see how to brace the floors and go crazy!

Thanks! Thank goodness I don't get food in the tanks just fingers and toys.

Thanks! Don't tell hubby that! I'm not allowed any more (for now hehehe).

Cheeky cheeky!! Looks like I've been caught out. I was in a rush, kids distracted me, the kettle boiled, the dog ate my home work..... Wait I don't have a dog


I wish! I'm already afraid the wooden floors won't take all the weight.

Thanks! He knows. Just taking the Micky outta me

As far as weight goes just think of it this way if you had a party and had 20 or 30 people over would your buckle and collapse from that weight? I doubt it

But they wouldn't all be standing on each others shoulders.

Bathrooms sometimes need extra bracing for a bigger than usual bath. With something like this, as they say, better to be safe than sorry.

But floor to ceiling tanks would be awesome!

Meegosh - it is good to have them (almost) all set back up. Still waiting on a truck to borrow to move the African tank. Haven't been to the old house in a few days so I hope the tank hasn't crashed or something stupid. I am definitely not planning on moving again any time soon! Hubby might think I've gone mad if I get an engineer out to look at the floors. Lol.

Samzter - thanks

Greenphantom - its not a real fear at the moment and I did think of that but I've found out that the floor in that room and the one next to it isn't floor board but the old decking. They built the extension over the deck and used the same floor......

SushiLuckyFin - That would be awesome. I'd love to have a tank in a wall in this house. Hubby said maybe in the next one and my response was that I don't know about him but I'm not moving again for a VERY long time so we might as well do it!
