Moving a 130L dirted aquarium

Recommended Posts

Just looking for some advice on moving a large very heavily planted aquarium 15mins away from where it is.

Don't really want to take all of the plants, dirt, and substrate out, but would empty all the water.

I would brace the base of the tank with a flat board but I'm not sure how well its going to work

You can lay moist newspaper over the plants to stop them drying out but a 15 minute move isn't long. Trigger spray to mist would probably do. 

Definitely needs a board underneath to lift. If your stand is sturdy, you could lift with the stand rather than just tank. 

If it's flat surface everywhere, you can car jack one end at a time, slip under wheels and push to move. Wouldn't do this for a wooden stand. I've broken 10 foot glass tanks by moving with just 15cm of water. So just take care.
