You might have to negotiate the tube and cables depending where your power socket is but I had no problem with the door. For removals I simply unplugged and took to the sink.
I also ran co2.
Did you made use of the rear cut outs in top back of the Vision 180 tank, to get the 22mm inflow and outflow pipes into the tank ?
I might have to get both pipes via left hand side as I still have the original Jewel in tank filter fitted (but with upgraded powerhead) which would get in the way of using the right hand cut out ?
Ian if you are going to get an e1500 then DONT. Get the e1501 Greenline instead. Its a fiver more but uses 40% less power !! 20w instead of 35w.
