A little update here...the tank has been up and cycling for about 2 months. I'm hoping to start moving the livestock from the 20 into this one this week.


Before I start, should I do a complete (or very large) water change?

Upon cycle completion your nitrates will be pretty high(if this is Fishless didn't go back to look)

Either way I would do a big water change.

Yes, it's fishless. I thought so, just wanted to double check.

Finally made the move this week. Took a few hours to do the move but the new tank is up and running.

Yup hahaha. Hopefully it stays this way through New Years when my family comes to visit. One hiccup..my HOB skimmer (Eshopps PSK 75H) won't fit in my sump (too tall, and can't be re-plumbed), so I'm looking for a Reef Octopus 110SS. This is the time to buy with all the MAP restricted items on sale. I know a skimmer is not a necessity, but it makes reef life so much easier.

nice job on the scape , what kind of stock do you have moving in to it,
I wouldn't stress over the skimmer until your ready to go reef , for now you'll be just fine

It's the existing stock that I have: 2 clowns (added a gramma today), cleaner shrimp, pistol shrimp, two duncan colonies, a huge branching frogspawn, torch, zoas, hammer, acans, and birdsnest.

So, yeah, I'm already at the reef

I loved mine too. Just gotta get a new one. No biggie, since a bunch of stuff from the old tank is being sold off anyway.
