Well thank you but I think it has a LONG way to go to get to where my 72 was before all the mess....

I think it looks pretty good there Allen. I am sorry for all your issues, but it seems you've got them all taken care of now, and isn't building it all up supposed to be the fun part?

Had I not gone through 2 cracked tanks I would say yes building it up is the fun part. However with all the coral I lost because of it I have to say that I look at the tank cautiously everyday. Every morning when I get home the first thing I do is check for leaks. I guess that will go away after a while but so far I haven't really been able to "enjoy" this process.

I know what it will look like so that keeps me going.

Just for a reference point here is one of the last FTS of the 72 before the upgrade.



As you can see there is a long way to go before the 120 looks as good as the 72 did. I'm doing things a little different this time around and picking corals that are more obscure and unique. The only catch with that is they are a lot more expensive. Oh well you have to do something with your money right? I still have my standbys the teal acro that was giant I have several pieces of that coral. I also have the monti caps from the 72 though only frags of them. The only large coral I have left (SPS) is the Pink Pocillapora and it's not looking so great. Oh well you live and learn. The 120 will far out shine the 72...it will just take 8 months to a year to get there.

If it helps, I'll sacrifice by returning the 72 to you in trade for your 120... you know, that way you don't have to wait so long.

Look, I'm just trying to help - you know, return the favor for all the help you've given to me. Ease your pain and suffering a little bit maybe, that's all I'm trying to do here.

Careful what you wish for neilanh. You might trade him for an upgrade and end up with a ton of cracked tanks. LoL ziggy might pass on his tank crack curse. Tank looks real nice ziggy. I'm sure your frags will grow out big and beautiful in no time.
