Any suggestions how to move my tank back home from my office? I am afraid water will be splashing all over once I put them in the car n drive home. Also those shrimps babies might die.

Well this may not be your thing. But one option could be to top the water fully off to the edge and then "seal" the tank with bits of rubber or silicone, ... and a top part like another glass pane. It should work. You just need to secure it with a lot of tape. Just an idea. :grin3:

It would be pretty difficult for me as my tank doesnt come with a top. I have a piece of plastic customed made but it doesn’t seal off completely

Do you have a photo of your tank so we can see what we are dealing with?

One way is to leave half the tank with water so it is manageable to carry and take out everything except the gravel & Opae ula. Plastic wrap the top with tape.

Wrap the tank with something soft ( old blanket? ) and tape around.

Drive slowlyyy. Good luck.
