|thelub||I was able to move it with just me and a buddy. I'm sure the suction cups will be handy when i go to actually install this into my home, but it won't be for a LONG while yet. I have to get a bigger place to put it in first. I couldn't pass up a 200 gal starfire tank for 160 bucks, even if I cant set it up yet.|

I had a tank the same size. Buy or rent some 8" suction cups, it will make the move much easier.
With suction cups you will need at least 5 guys (with out suction cups probably more). 4 to lift, one to guide and move things around if necessary.

That might not be so bad to move then. I bet its something like a marine land tank. It has fugly edge caps on all corners and top and the middle brace is broken, but that just give me more incentive to do a euro brace or something.
thanks for the input guys!

|exv152||I would guess it's actually a 72x24x30 which is a 220 gal, and an empty marineland tank that size weighs 392 lbs empty, according to their online specs.|

|GnoixuoS||My 135 gallon with all 1/2" glass was super heavy. Took 3 of us to get it off the stand and onto moving dollies. I recommend using dollies for any big size tanks.|

Mine that size is 1/2 inch plate glass......has to be 35 years old. Big heavy bugger. I'm gonna say in the 400+ lb range cause two swole guys could lift it, but it took four to actually move it with any confidence of not twisting it into a leaker.
It shall never again be moved from my basement,,, not whole.

big tankers! I need your input
I haven't seen it in person, but I'm guessing its 3/4" glass. The craigslist ad says 70" x 30" x 24".
How many people has it taken in the past to move an aquarium that size?
