    Yeah, I'd just make sure there are at least 2 people. Use a carpet or something to keep from getting scratches in it!! Good luck, I know what my 300 weighed!!!!!

    Woohoo! Awesome Jiddy. I can't wait to see you put this thing together. Don't forget to do a fresh water test before you put in your RO/DI water. You never know - and doing a leak test is always a good idea.

    Hmmm....some kind of canister filter? Looks like there are 2 spots to hook up water...for an input and output. Have you opened it yet?

    Yeah, that's a magnum HOT filter. I love using mine with the micron filter to spot clean diterus and for cleaning the sump.

    Congrats on your tank Jiddy!!

    You can get a wet/dry vac at Lowes or Home Depot. That's super exciting about your tank!
