Hello, im looking into setting up a 75 gallon African cichlid aquarium. Does anyone know if an empty 75 gallon tank is too heavy or awkward for a fairly strong man to carry? Ideally I'd like to just do it myself
Is doable but is better to slide the tank in an old moving blanket until is close to the stand. is not that you won't be able to lift it is just that is uncomfortable since there is nowhere to get a good grip and a bad movement and you could have a broken or leaking tank.
I brought a 120 gallon home by myself.
I can move them empty, but I am 6'3 and have a wingspan to work with. I also used to deliver fridges, and know the safer tricks. I'm kind of an old guy for these things now, but it's all leverage, not strength. Usually, I put styro on a dolly and move them, then just lift them into place. It is more fun when you have help.
