When I move my 150gal I used a utility cart and 4X4 place in three different places on the cart. Strapped it all down it was so easy.

Having a few good friends helps. Really depends how far you need to move it. Having one of those furniture movers (basically a pallet with wheels) helps a lot if it's a long ways going straight and you're shorthanded. They also have these suctioncup things (I'll look for a link) with handles that are made to move glass.

C'mon guys, he lives in OC, there has to be tons of people around there. Someone go give the guy a hand.

Biggest thing not to do when moving/lifting a large tank is to twist it (will pop a seam real easy). 2 people should be enough for a tank up to 150g (or 4 - one on each corner). Just pick it up square and flat and there shouldn't be a problem.
