It's going to be so much easier than starting from scratch. You'll have all that new glorious room to grow stuff in. My wife tells me I am insane, but I want a 1000 gallon someday.

I hope it all goes together easily ,..but nothing ever does,...I'm sure once this is up and running smoothly I'd wish I would have bought something bigger,..but it'll have to hold me for awhile... Kinda hate to even do this right now because my 75 gal is looking super since the LED's ,...oh well.... I got about a month to plan this whole thing out and to build up the nerve to do it.

I could help out with that

Btw what do you do about diatom blooms? And did you see somewhere I posted that I found a red mushroom in my tank. Can't get a picture cause I can't squeeze behind the tank I only left 8" and I'm not that skinny. Wish I left it out 12" now cause I can squeeze in then. LOL

Can you go to my build and see if you can make any suggestions on my pH issue please?

Still looking forward to pictures, sump and all.

The diatoms are going to come with the new setup like it or not,.... they'll hang out for a week or two and eventually will use up all their nutritions and will fade away,...nothing much you can do about it,. Just don't invite anyone over to see your new setup until they disappear.
This will try my nerves for sure but it's going to happen so I'll try and make the best if it,.... They'll be alot of beer drinking going on at Dary's during that week...of course, as with Ryan there's always a tall frosty one waiting for you too

Getting the nerve up is the worst part once you get your arms wet it gets a little easier for me anyway

Yeah,..I know what you mean,..you wake up one morning and walk over to the tank and kinda look at it thinking,,.do I really wanna do this???... Then you say the heck with it and start unplugging your power heads , etc,...well,.. For the next few hours you'll be moving like a madman trying to keep up with whats ahead of you.... But ,I'm sure in the long run it'll be a wonderful adventure and well worth it...but it's that first day thats's really going to suck.

Exactly and then you start thinking too hard during the process and get lost standing for an hour looking at the tanks thinking what next?...lol

But it is fun besides worrying about fish and coral and all that stuff
