Yeah, it's way better than my 54, especially since I didn't have to include the costs of test kits, refractometer, etc. Not to mention, I only figured about half the amount of corals as I have and (4) less fish.

Dang, I feel bad now... I just tallied up my 54 and without even counting the ongoing salt usage and food for the year, my total was... $3602. OUCH!

My next build is going to be a 180 FOWLR, but not until I figure out this whole oversea's working deal. Once I find out I'm staying in the states, and get into a house instead of an apartment, I'll pull the trigger.

I actually gave away a 180 gallon tank with stand, canopy, 75 gallon sump / refugium, sea swirls, and mag 12 pump for free!!!! At the time, I thought it was too big and I'd never use it, but now I'm kicking myself like crazy.

Its a freshwater set-up now...

Absolutely, it literally felt like I went to the beach, filled up a 5-gallon bucket, and brought it home. It's really nice, the only thing its missing is about 30lbs of rock sitting on top of it!

Lol. I hear ya. I think it took me about 16 days to get my rocks from him. Worth the wait though. The rock is nicer than the sand...
