Hope you don't plan on moving it when it's full like that, you're going to slosh quite bit of water on the floor. And the casters may hold the weight, but what about the wheels? Being stuck in one position they're liable to get flat spots and then they're kind of useless as wheels.

It doesn’t really need to be moved but nice in case we have to. Been working well so far, hopefully they don’t flatten out much

If you ever do need to move it, I would recommend temporarily removing more water than you think you have to before. Also I hope the wheels have good locks, so that it is solid against accidental bumps. The wheels probably add a few inches, which is nice.

I like your archway.

Making progress on rebuilding Mario’s 150 gal cube. We got the system plumbed last week (we meaning Mario).

Finally got it set up downstairs and started the aquascaping and filled it up with water and salt.

This is one of the better aquascapes I’ve seen in a while. Interesting from nearly all angles.

Wait...what?...flat spots?! That reminds me... I need to move my car as soon as I get home.

Tank cycle is complete! I got the doors on the sides and mounted the switch board. Temporary light is up while we are waiting for the controller to arrive for the ati hybrid.

Planning to put the first fish in tomorrow once the water clears up.

Hoping it clears up tomorrow, we were trying to get the skimmer dialed and it seems to be clearing up already

Has it been cloudy like that the whole time? How long has it been “cycling”?
