    Tank is in the basement!!!! Had to remove the stairs, a support column, vent, some plumbing and a few other things to get it down there. Thanks to Scott, Ken, Ben, and plus a few other non-club friends, we got it down in the hole. No one got hurt, and with a minimum off scratches. Really couldn't have done it without the assist of our awesome club members!!! Thanks guys!

    Had to set the tank to the side for now, taking up half the room, and leaving the wrapping on it for now. Next step though, is for me to finish the tile on the stand, so I can get it in its final resting place.
    Pics to come, but too freaking tired, and relieved, to fumble with that right now.

    Haha, ya it looks a bit odd. Its still wrapped in paper and a few rolls of packing tape. Ill take all that off once its on the stand to protect it from scratches as much as possible.

    Haha. Where there is a will, there is a way!! I didnt want to ever be one to say "I should have gone bigger", so I designed it to be the absolute max size I could fit in the space. An inch bigger in any direction and it wouldn't have been possible to get it down here. I spent many hours toiling over the dimension on this thing and still had a few unexpected issues trying to get it in, namely the stairs, but it is down here to stay now
