Mastershake has a good idea. Get a buddy to help. We did that on a 75 when we realized my friend's new overflow wouldn't fit.

You shoul not have to remove 80% of water. I just removed 25% of mine and then walked it over.

If I understand you correctly, melosu58, a 25% removal would leave about 50 gallons of water in the tank. Assuming zero displacement, the tank would weigh about 400 pounds. Even if you had the people to move that, the constant jarring of "walking" the tank would create tremendous stress on the tank and its seams. I think.

or, place a car tyre jack against the wall and the stand. (with protection padding of course) and wind it forward if you don't want to empty the tank.

Just brainstormed that one then :P

For a couple inches? I didnt know you was moving it next door. I`m only talking from experience. I had to move mine and two of us moved it the couple feet we needed to by only removing 25% and that only so it would not spash out the sides.

I just had to move mine out about an inch for an overflow box. All I did was drain about 30% of the water and lift each side little by little and move it out. If you have anything in the stand underneath take it out...
