    It's off!!!! Whoohoooo. The funny thing is, I think it was a bit of a combination of several of your methods which did the trick. I tried the hitting gently with a bit of wood, and that seemed to very slightly prise it open on one side, and in fact some of the soapy water came out of the joint. Then I tried heating the lid again with cold water inside. We went out for several hours and when I got home I picked up the tank. As soon as I touched the lid it almost slid off. Thanks all.

    That's great Keith. I was just about to suggest the angle grinder method or even a controlled explosion - happily, now I don't need to!

    Excellent!
    Photography has always fascinated me -- as a child, simply for the magic of capturing an image onto glossy paper with a little box, but as an adult because of the unique juxtaposition of science and art -- the physics of optics, the mechanics of the camera, the chemistry of film and developer, alongside the art in seeing, composing, exposing, processing and printing.
