Today I disconnected my HOB Aqueon 75 from my 55 gallon tank. I have been running a Fluval 406 on there to get it seeded and I believe the day has come. I donating the HOB to my kids school tomorrow. Also, fertilized my plants and am getting my house ready for either a 55gallon or 75 gallon I am purchasing this weekend. I plan on going 1 discus tank and 1 CA/SA cichlid tank. Discus tank will be heavily planted (possibly high tech), the other will be a low tech rock/hearty plant tank. My golden Severum seems to destroy my plants.

Largest I've done is my 45g. And it had 40 pounds on tiny gravel in it. On its stand it sits shoulder level with me. I'm 6'2" it was not easy alone

I've never tried to lift an empty 55, but when we brought ours home it was full of gravel, and about 4" of water. Took my brother in law and myself to move it. My 65g hex weighs close to 200# completely empty though, super thick glass

All I've moved is a full 5g and an empty 20g by myself; almost equally as heavy. I don't move my tanks anymore after my brother broke my very first 10g when we moved to our new house.

It's quite the place! Well worth the trip, too.

I've moved both a 55g, a 40b, and a 90g (drug on it's stand). The 40b was the worst because it's impossible to maneuver through a door by yourself. My arms are just long enough to make the 55g okay to move by myself.

Discovered my life as a plant keeper has failed miserably because the person I assigned to take care of my fish did not turn out my T5HOs for a week... And turned on all FOUR BULBS MINUS CO2 when I instructed only two and flip the switch for CO2. I'm quite angry
