HOWEVER, once i put it in one location im not planning to move it... only down side i would think is that my lease started Jan and planning to renew it after Jan2013 comes around so i wouldnt leave until Jan 2014

i wonder if having all that weight in one spot for 2 yrs would "weaken" it.. i mean i would be against a wall (on the living room wall that divides the living room and Master bedroom on 2nd floor)

Do like I did if the 55 is too small go to a 75 off cl. See if you can find a reef ready tank. I'm selling mine right now as a matter of fact but I'm in Chicago. And start accumulating equipment. A single Vortech pump can cost as much as a tank! Also in this hobby you really get what you pay for. You buy cheap equipment don't expect it to perform for any long time frame if at all.

Are you in a newer apartment building? If so the floors are probably spancrete which could hold 2 cars. My buddy's garage floor is spancrete so he actually has another garage under his main one. Pretty cool. If not then you be pushing it on a 125.

That goes back to the height discussion. 90 has the same footprintas a 75 just 6 inches taller. Basically if u have anything less that a dual 250 w metal halide u can't really keep any corals near the bottom
