1f) The tank reached its home position.
Kind of unreachable due to its extreme tall in size.
The height of the setup is 2.6m (at tank top).



1g) The tank is in position
It is time for the floor to work, it need to take the load of 6+ tons from the tank once water is in!!



1h) The setup in progress
Tank_Maker guy is walking in the tank doing gravel leveling


More detail shall be available at appropriate time.

See u later.

Thanks bro and Bboy for visiting.
We will be presenting the journey on getting this tank in place; hope not too lengthy as we glad to have gained experience through
- manufacturing constraint where no raw material available locally
- customer need where The Task is to construct a monster sea life aquarium that enhance the customer product (oceanic related).
