Well, after watching the videos for the resealing of the tank, I'm going to do it. But, in the mean time, I'm going to go look at this 150g today! I may either keep or sell this 125 after I seal it. Up to the wife...lol

72" long 150 would make a cool tank. Good luck to both endeavors.

That's awful. That guy is full of it BTW. We've moved several big tanks and never ended up with leakers as a result. Resealing isn't that bad, of course the worst part is getting all the old silicone off of the glass. The biggest I've done myself is a 75 gal. I think you can do this.

Bluejaw trigger is one of my favorite fish BTW.

Yeah, same thing I said, but had to keep my cool, not going to stoop to his level.

The blue jaw is really showing it's colors, I'll try to get an updated pic today.

The trick to moving big tanks is to not twist it.

I did hear that when moving a tank that has been used it is a good idea to wrap it in duct tape to improve rigidity.

Just something I heard not something I've ever tried.

Never heard of that but I can see how it would improve stability. Might be a bit tedious though.
