i dont think any of you could beat my deal of 180g for 175 hehe
new 180 gal with Dual overflows, 40 gal wet/dry sump. Oak stand and canopy, PC lights, new dolphin pumps still in the box, and a UV. The guy had bought it all as a new SW setup but his job transferred him out of town. Got it all for $500. Not sure how "good" of a deal it is since I put it in storage where it has been ever since.

Better yet you stop by LR.com and bring me a load of rock when you come to get it. When I got it I was all smiles. Felt like I had robbed the bank. Now I feel like the ink pack exploded so it was all a waste of time.

Personally I’d go with the 55 gal with lights considering the cost of PC lighting. Both are relatively same length so getting large fish that would normally work in a 100+ gal long tank still isn’t really feasible and the only real advantage is you could stock 4-6 more average sized fish then the 55 gal. Also the 110 gal would require mh lighting due to the height if you ever wanted to keep corals.

Of course getting both is always an option

P.S.
Brian, I’m amazed you haven’t sold that tank yet! Would you sell it for what you paid for it?

Thats what I was thinking as well tec. ..... that 110 is very deep so I would need MH to penetrate the depth. The 55 comes with I believe a 4 X 65watt PC strip so that would be sufficient for some softies and some LPS.

Not to mention the cost of 200+ lbs. of LR and a little less sand for a nice DSB ... 8O 8O 8O 8O 8O

Plus I found out the 55gal comes drilled, with lights and 20gallon AGA that can be turned sump. Hmmmmmm????

The 110 is just such a nice tank!!!

I completely forgot the 55 gal was drilled and reef ready! My next tank is going to be drilled for sure. Not that I hate my overflow since it’s worked flawlessly but not having the tank flush against the wall is a small pet peeve of mine.

And you’re right about the lights, I have the same amount on my 55 gal and it’s great for keeping medium light corals

P.S. Congrats on the 1000 post and becoming a “Addict” which I would have to say we all are to some point

Yeah I like my tanks to be flush as well and I think with the drilled tank it will be nice, although it is a corner tank!

WOW ..... didn't even notice I had a 1000 already!!!!! WOOOOOOT



Thanks!
