Time lapse video of complete reef tank tear-down

By Leonard Ho - Posted Jul 16, 2013 09:00 AM
This video couldn't be any more timely. Both Shane Graber and myself have had to tear down our tanks in recent weeks (due to relocating or restarting our tanks). Both of us wanted to get the job done as quickly as possible so neither of us documented the process. Thankfully Keith Simonian thought otherwise.

Large aquarium tear-downs are no small undertaking.  Keith compresses nearly four hours of hard work dismantling his tank into this two minute video.  As a result of his labor of love, his fish and corals now happily reside in their new 300 gallon home.

Keith describes his video:

This time lapse shows the complete tear down of my 6'x20"x22" salt water reef tank. All the creatures made the trip to their new bigger home safely. It was just a very long day. I spent 3 hours and 50 minutes taking down the tank, then all the inhabitants had to be transferred to the new tank some 20 miles away.
