A gallon of water weighs 8 pounds so my little 5G weighs about 45 pounds, not 20.It’s not going to be heavy being a 5 gallon tank 20 pounds max with a little water and substrate in it
Yes a full 5 gallon will weigh about 60 pounds with water and substrate but with it drained 75% will drop it quite a bit to about 20 pounds is what i was referring to. I agree to combat the algae issue at home before bringing it to work with you. Good luck!A gallon of water weighs 8 pounds so my little 5G weighs about 45 pounds, not 20.
Thanks for the recommendations. That's what I thought to do but I'm stalling now because there is some hair algae in there and I don't want to deal with that at work so was torn between draining water and refilling at work or tearing the tank down, treating the algae and rebuilding at work.
