This tank is 10' x 30" x 36" and weighed 1000lbs empty. It took 10 people to carry it and put it in place. Watch you fingers!! affraid

Wow you should start a reality TV show with this Mark. Just be informative about fish keeping. The last show died because of lack of knowledge of the builders.

That is awesome man. It would be nice to see a show from somebody who could actually be informative instead of what I saw on the last one. That being said I will probably still check out the next season of that show anyway lol. Sometime in the spring there will be a 10 show season.

It looks like they're holding suction cups to the glass panels. Are they?

Yes, I have 4 suction cups that you have to pump up and it sticks to the glass. Most will hold 75lbs.

That's going to be an amazing tank. I bet you were sweating that one while being moved.
