    Head over to your local Home Depot. They rent trucks around here they are 20 bucks for the first 75 minutes. Get a couple buddies. DONT try moving it yourself, they are heavy!!!!

    Congrats! I'd be useless at moving it. :(

    I can't wait to see it all set up. You've been looking forward to this for so long....and it's finally happening! :D

    People don't look excited when you ask them to help move a big fish tank. It took me and 3 of my friends to carry mine up to my second floor. Wasn't as bad as I thought it would be.

    Get an RO/DI unit and make your own.

    RO/DI water around here is 50 cents a gallon. So it would cost 60 bucks to fill up your tank. That is almost half the price of unit right there. IMO, RO/DI is right up there with the lights as one of the most important things to get for the tank. You could possibly hold off on some LR especially if you dont increase the ammount of livestock you have in the tank.

    Seriously, you're better off getting an RODI. Even if you purchse your first 125g (plus however many gallons for the sump), don't forget about evaporation. The amount of money you spend on the intitial fill up, plus future top offs and water changes alone might make an rodi worth the cost.
