So, I am still looking for a 180 gallon on CL, and my search isn't going anywhere. I have been searching for a while now, and I am getting anxious. I guess patience is key. I was so tempted to buy the iPhone 4S, but I am glad I didn't because then I wouldn't have as much money for this future build. I think I have an idea of what lighting I am getting. I forgot the brand but I know I have it in this thread! Anyways, just a little update. I am open to suggestions of fish, coral etc.

Probably, every day I check CL. I will find one soon enough.

Don't only stick to ur region when u r looking at CL. if you are willing to drive 1-2 hrs I would extend my search to surrounding areas too. This way you have higher chances

Good luck

180g....might as well take it to a 200g lol. From all the tedious reading I've done (my head really hurts between fishtanks and actually school work), I'm under the assumption that the bigger the tank, the easier they are to deal with - even to the point of no water changes; but those are huge tanks. For example, my 14g is a real pain compared to my 40g. I can do the same gallon change on both and the 14g will still need some type of adjustment/correction in a few days.

I've been planning for a 350g, probably FOWLR, but that will be a while, as I'm on the 3rd floor in an apartment right now lol.

I'm sure you'll find what you are looking for

Oh for your rimless, right? Why don't you get this one, if it keeps coming up, it must be a sign,.

Well, I think I will plan on this one, it can keep many different kinds of corals, and it has moonlights. . I am getting antsy on this tank, I search on CL everyday!

Just wondering,

Ever since I saw your thread about whether to get a 180 or 220, I have been thinking. If a 220 came up for a good price, I might consider buying it. Could I use the same fixture we have been talking about on it? I will still probably end up with a 180, but I would just like to know just in case. Thanks!
