Sorry to hear you are moving on, you are truly an accomplished aquarist, and have been both an inspiration and an excellent source of information over the years. I hope you will leave your site up, as there is a TON of good fishkeeping, aquatic plant, algae avoidance, etc info there which has helped THOUSANDS of other aquarists over the years.
I would like to take this oppurtunity to personally THANK YOU, and wish you well in whatver other hobbies/endeavours you pursue in the future.

Monica, you got my PMs

Thanks Shari!! I can use some marketing help:)

geaston, You are a few hours from here, I'm north of Allentown, and Monica is very interested. To answer your questions, this 90 is 48”*18”*24” tall and with the stand and hood the whole deal stands 57” tall. Because of the filters on the back, its 23 inches from the wall to the front of the tank.

I've no doubt about this Shari, and honestly I am drooling that I would be so close to having such an extradinary tank in MY home.. literally drooling.. I dreamed about fish last night.

The only thing left to figure out is transporting it. If I had a bunch of strong men and a big truck, it would be here already. :-)

Oh man, is it going to be heavy. 8)

If you do move you may want to bring big tubs to move some of the plants for transport. You'll have to drop the water level to almost nil, or possibly even break down the full tank. You'll need a couple of tall buckets/rubbermaid tubs, and some kind of thin towels you can wet to cover the plants so they don't dry out. There are some BIG healthy plants in there. 8)

The stand is no lightweight thing, either. If it's possible, I'd do it in two stages. Bring the fish and temporarily put them into your tanks and float the plants. You could also bring some of the odds and ends that will fit. Then go back for the main tank and accoutrements/substrate. That way the fish will be acclimated to your water, you can take your time to get the tank set up and aquascaped at your house, and you can let it settle before you add the fish.

JD could possibly break it down for you once the fish and plants are gone. 8)
