Way too many large tanks on CG taunting me . I bet that's hard having a 150 there and not using it. Oh, high end stuff. Going to be epic!

Yeah, it does suck looking a big, beautiful empty tank, but it gives me a lot of planning & thought time. I hear & read so many stories of "if I tore the tank down today, this is what I'd do different......" that I think I'll be better off for the wait & get it right the first time.

Yeah I know some things I'd do differently, I think everyone regrets some type equipment or fish when they read more about it or something new and improved gets popular. Great to plan years in advance life you're doing.

I would upgrade my tank just on that bird's nest alone! Beautiful. That might be something for a frag swap once it gets to growing more. You get hungry for coral I'd love to trade off for that beauty. I'm sure there are others around me that'd say the same.
