View Full Version : Some last pics before the move
03/03/2006, 07:11 PM
Haven't been around much lately. Will be moving next weekend and figured I'd post some pics before the tear down. Hopefully everything survives the move.
This one I got from Downset before he moved, it was the size of a dime last year around this time.
This one is from RandyO, of course this side is the less impressive.
This SPS I got from Keith, it grew well under my PC's.
Have always recieved alot of help here on the boards. Thought I'd share. There are so many new people! Do we have a current count of members??

I don't think I've ever posted pictures of my dogs.
Here is Nikita- the Huskie- (1/2 Huskie- 1/2 Timber Wolf) and our new Boston Terrier - Blue. Blue as in Old School not Clues!

She adopted him fairly quick.
ps- Anyone who has ever moved a tank- Whats a better way to trasport water besides 5gal buckets?

I used 18 gallon totes that I got from BigLots for pretty cheap. I moved 280 gallons that way. Then they come in handy for storing stuff in the basement.
Good luck after moving my 180 I don't envy you

Beautiful tank and great nail polish there Brian :p just kidding. Hope everything survives the move. I have an old tank I used to move in the past. Its good to have a place set up and ready to go when you get to the new place, salinity, PH etc. Also, have plenty of coolers and such available and try and keep a good portion of the water from the current tank to use in the next one. I see you have the sandbed, it looks clean but I'm sure there's a ton of stuff in there that can pollute the tank, be careful disturbing it and how you move it. You probably already knew all of this but I thought I would offer the info just in case.

Just saw your profile and it says you'll be leaving the state. A long distance move is a lot different than a short one. I'd invest in a power inverter that you can plug an air pump and heater into your cigarette lighter if need be. If you get one, grab some extra fuses they blow them a lot.

We are not leaving the state just yet. I am moving into a home I own in cheeektowaga for a little while. Beats paying rent out in Alden. We'll be moving either in the Fall or next spring for NC. Thanks for all the advice, going to Big-Lots today.

Another reefer on the move, eh?
Beautiful reef aquarium.
Good luck, Brian. I'm moving my aquarium on the 18th of March- but only a mile away. You're welcome to help out and see how its done! :D
(I wouldn't get totes that are too big. A 5 gallon bucket gets heavy awfully quick- and I'm no fruitcake!)

Good Luck, You have alot more water to move than me! You upgrading to a larger tank? I would gladly come out and give you a hand but that week is going to be a disaster for me and I'm sure you already have alot of hands.

It's a lateral move for me- same size aquarium but plumbed differently. I'll have more "disaster" to share than hands, I'm sure.

Well good luck Gary, We can exchange horror stories in a couple weeks!

I'd sacrifice my left you-know-what if I didn't lose anything. Good luck to you , too.
03/04/2006, 08:00 AM
The leather, neptha and zoanthids are doing great. When I was over you had some frags of your sun coral. Is there any left? I gotta pick one up before you move:)
03/04/2006, 12:01 PM
The tank looks great. Good luck with the move. I always have extra tanks, equipment, and totes, if you need anything.
03/04/2006, 06:34 PM
Bill- I have one frag left of my suns- the other got eaten by one of my acan echinatas- amazing the reach those things have. I'll get ahold of you after the move to cheektovegas.
Randy- Thanks for the offer- I appreciate it. I think I'm pretty covered with supplies. If I drop my tank I'll be looking for a 90gal Sat the 11th around noon- LOL. I'll have to drop by the new store and say hello soon.
03/04/2006, 08:30 PM
Please, don't sacrifice that!
03/05/2006, 08:26 AM
Good Luck with the move!
