Hey,

We are going to start moving our tank to the new house next weekend and would appreciate any help we can get. If we cannot finish this weekend we will work on it next weekend also. Thanks

Zul,

I should be around this coming weekend if you still need a hand.  I've got some buckets and such I can bring if needed as well.  Saturday would be better for me, sometime after 9 AM.

Zul,
I thought that Phil and I talked about doing the move on the weekend of the 31st not the 24th?

We are going to work both weekends if needed, Phil is taking off the 22nd, is off on the 23rd and of course the 24th and 25th. On the 24th he has to work at the Park till about 11:00 AM. We have Ed's big water tank now, so we will get the livestock and rock over to McMurray this weekend and as much of the tank as we can manage.

Zul, can you give me directions to get to your current place?  If so, I should be able to come lend a hand still.

First Day
 
Thanks a lot for the help to Marty.
 
Thank you very much to Rick, Nate and Colleen. It was a full day from noon to 10:30 PM, we took down, moved, cleaned up and re-plumbed the tank.
 
Second Day
 
We started again at noon and by about 4:00 PM had water in the tank with a new pump pumping out about 5,000 gph in the closed loop. There are new holes through the wall. There are new durso pipes and at the end of a very long weekend a very clean tank with no leaks with everything in a room behind the room with only the stand and tank in it. This week we will set up the skimmer, lights, electricity and put the wood around the tank and stand. Thanks again to Nate, Colleen and Rick for your help. We could not have done it without you.

Had a lot of fun helping out Zul.  It was nice to spend some time with you, Phil, and Rick!  Can't wait to see pictures of the tank all put together and the fish swimming around!

Zul,

I was glad I could help out, just as you and Phil have done for us so many times.

It was a lot of fun and that tank setup should work out very well for you.
