Alright well I've been a while since I last checked I haven't been in the mood to come on until my tank was all set up. With that said I finally got the new tank on Friday. Painted it on Saturday. And set it up on Sunday.

Just to let some of u guys know what I've been up to. I got in contact with this guy on Craigslist that was selling some live rock. He had a 125 reef in the wall of his basement. Really nice guy so I get to his house and we start going through rock and I told him I wanted 50 lbs. Well after going through it and talking to him for awhile he ends up giving me about 80 lbs and for 100 bucks and this is the good stuff it have mushrooms and Caroline algae all over it.

So when were standing outside of his house he tells me he has a bunch of stuff in his garage I can have if I want. Well to sum it all up he ends up giving me a acrylic sump/fuge, mag drive 3, a pho.sban reactor, calcium reactor and co2 tank, a hole bag of new filter socks, fuge light, korilia power head, and believe it or not a 1/3 HP chiller and a bunch of little things. I mean this guy was like Santa to me. And all I payed him was a hundred buck. Like I said he was a really nice guy but I made out like a bandit

I'll post some pictures later when I get home yesterday was like Christmas

Thanks I mean I couldn't believe it he just kept saying "oh u can have this" and pack my truck full of stuff. He downsized his tank to a 39 gallon cube I kinda felt bad because he had his yellow tang and a huge clown in there but his corals were awesome

Things have a way of working themselves out. Sounds like you made a great score, Paul.

Yes I did I shut down the hole system atleast once a day. It fill my sump up to there I have like a 1.5 inches of space left over once the dt is all drained and all siphons have been broken allot of thought and planning when into that factor.
