Moving planted aquarium

Recommended Posts

So im moving house and have a well establised planted tank. 

Im after all the advice and opinions on moving it still planted or tear it down to bare. 

Also it needs to go down a flight of stairs at the current address and is 3ft long.

personal i would tear it down and move it bare, not worth the risk of damaging seals or worse braking panels with all that weight that will most likely shift when negotiating stairs assuming that tank bass was being well supported through out.

A shame to see the hard work of getting to a well established and balanced planted tank ruined  but  good excuse change layout or make room for new plants.

Just drain as much water out as possible, cover plants with damp newspaper and shift.

If the tank glass is thinner than it should be, you can slide a sturdy sheet of wood underneath and lift the wood.

 

Almost all the planted tanks at the RNA show are well established tanks that have been moved.
