 and  i  definitely  dont  want  to  mess  up  the  scape.
 
 being  on  the  third  floor  there  are  about  60  steps  that  are  to  be  climb  down  and  being  a  poor  man  my  landlord  couldnt  afford  the  lift.  ROFL         
 below  it  there  is  a  thermocol  of  20mm  and  below  it  is  a  plywood  of  6mm.

 I  don't  see  any  other  option  other  than  stripping  the  tank  and  transporting  it  Smile  You  will  risk  breaking  the  bottom  glass  even  if  its  just  the  tank  with  substrate...

 If  your  new  home  is  near...  Cheer  
 1.  Remove  the  water  up  to  90%.
 2.  Ring  your  some  friends.
 3.  With  the  the  help  of  them,  transfer  to  new  place.

 Sad  that  you  will  have  to  strip  the  tank  and  redo  it  all  over  again,  but  I  guess  there  is  no  other  option.   Nice  congos!

 Stripping  the  tank  is  the  only  option  buddy.  Even  with  only  the  substrate,  you  risk  breaking  the  bottom  glass  and  also  risk  the  plants  drying  out  by  the  time  you  fill  it  again.

 You  must  be  a  really  rich  engineering  student   Chuckle  
 If  you  have  enough  manpower,  after  emptying  it  90%,  you  may  try  to  slide  it  onto  a  piece  of  plywood,  and  then  try  to  move.  
 However  i  am  just  thinking  out  loud.  and  i  may  be  wrong  Smile

 Consider  it  an  opportunity  to  rescape  your  tank  again....Try  out  a  better  scape  now...
 Completely  strip  it  down,  pack  the  plants  and  substrate  nicely,  clean  the  tank,  shift  the  stuff.
 
 Likewise  you  can  avoid  a  lot  of  tension  and  you  might  have  other  things  as  well  to  take  care  of  than  just  a  planted  tank.  Once  everything  settles  down  you  can  fully  concentrate  on  the  tank.

 @  Shubhankar-  No  no  man  its  not  like  that..
 you  dont  have  any  idea  what  sort  of  mess  i  did  to  earn  money  for  my  Magnum  Opus...
 i  cleaned  many  tanks,  raised  discus  babies,worked  in  an  aquarium  shop  just  for  having  my  tank  as  reality...  Smile
 and  even  my  parents  dont  know  about  my  hobby...   Wink  
 
 @  Hamza...
 i  have  a  plan  in  my  mind  by  which  i  think  the  relocation  can  be  done  without  breaking  the  bottom  glass....
 just  hope  it  works..  Very Happy
