Yes...you think you are done...how many times have I said that over the years...
You forget, even after you get all the toys, then it needs to be BIGGER. More frags, more fish, more and bigger equipment.
There is no end to it.

Very true. I only mean I'm going to be done with this tank!

I still have serious plans for a large FOWLR. I am smitten with triggers and I really like lions and puffers as well.

Plan for the next build is looking like a 180 gallon. Want to have a Volitan, puffer or two, huma triggers, and a Niger trigger.

Gonna need mad filtration for all the messy eaters, and I've got to get out of my 2nd floor apt, before a 180 comes back into my life.

I may start getting the equipment ready, so it'll be an expedited process, once the time comes.

Going to work overseas is starting to feel like its not happening, so as soon as I confirm I'm staying in the states, the focus will be on house-hunting.

The 1st week of my LED's the MAX was 60%, last week the MAX was 75%. Should I go up to 90% this week, or can I take it to 100? No need to rush, I'm okay with 90% if needed.

Update: ATO and aqua lifter are here. Also just finished a DIY silencer for my Reef octopus skimmer, and I am extremely pleased.

Dead silent!

Just for fun... Here's some pics of the "best growers" since the install of the LED's. These corals all did well under T5, but have grown exponentially in the past 2 weeks.

My Monti cap has also grown a ton, but it's difficult to get a picture of it now.
