Thanks Paul I appreciate the help and the advice from you, hank and everyone else that commented. I just hope I can get it up and running at home in time to move the corals and fish out of the 20 gallon at the office so I can get that tank moved home before October when my office is being moved. The only one I will take to the new office space is my 8 Gallon nano.

Sounds like a good office size. Especially if you ever move out again.

It is a good size office. Not sure how big the other office is, I haven't seen it yet.

Well I moved the tank out of my office on Saturday. Everything went as I expected it to. Now for the tough stuff. Cleaning, cleaning, and some more cleaning. Did I mention cleaning.
I'm going to try really hard to have this tank up and running by next weekend.

Cleaned and drilled my tank today. Installed the 1" bulkheads and getting ready to install the 3/4" bulkhead. Exciting!

That's really clean. Great job! I hope I can get things like that if I have to drill my eventual upgrade.

Thanks Hank. Once I scraped all the coralline algae off I used vinegar on a wet rag to wipe down the inside and outside.

Well BRS stewed up and didn't include my bulkheads in my order. Ugh! Called them on Thursday and they were suppose to send them overnight and still haven't gotten them. Another setback. In the mean time I'm getting some pieces of Plexiglas cut for the new sump build.
