Moving my 500L ratchet strapped tank from Jakarta to Saigon (video)


12 Nov 2009
Hi. I pop up here every few years.

I'm currently living in Jakarta, but moving back to Vietnam. I have a really great tank and cabinet to take with me, so I thought I would document the move here.

The sealant went on the tank a while ago, so I used a ratchet strap to hold the thing together, it works very well. Here's a vid of the tank as it currently looks, also you can see the ratchet setup.

I intend to break it down in to individual sheets of glass to transport it. Hopefully will be easier than installing it which required 4 people. When I get to Vietnam I will have it remade, but at a much lower cost, without the glass costs.

Let me know if you have any tips or tricks. Hope you like my messy tank.

(Low tech, 500l)
