I found a guy who works with Jdeevie who is gonna give me an 8'x4'x2'or3' (not sure on height). He says its 380 gallons. It a diy wood tank. The only problem is I have to take it apart in order to get it in my basement. I'm pretty sure is expoxy coaoted. So I'll have to cut it up. I plan on putting in a pond liner to seal it back up. Fortunatly, I deal with a rubber maufacturer who will be giving me some sheets of EPDM rubber, to use as a liner.

What do you think the min thickness of the rubber liner should be? I think the have as a standard thickness of 45 mils. But they'll make it as thick as I want.

They told me to just cut the pieces to size and they have liner tape ( to join the cuts together) that is harmless to fish. The guy I spoke with told me he used the same stuff in his pond and has had no problems for years. I cant wait.

Just found out its 18 inches high. So I might be able to manuvere it down the stairs and through the door. My concern is the height of 8 feet.
