Thanks for all the advice. Currently thinking I will move a FW tank to my bedroom. I will put the nano in the living room where it's easy to work on it. The nano really is for practice and to learn about SW and coral. As soon as our new room has flooring I can order the 90 gal but this could be next year. we had a problem with our rental property which has to come first over finishing this room renovation. I may be able to afford filling the larger tank with coral but I probably wouldn't because I still don't know what I'm doing and don't want to spend $2000 on coral and have it all die for some stupid mistake. About to buy the BRS 75gpd RO/DI - does that seem like a good unit?

The BRS RO/DIs are some of the best for your money.

So after much deliberation I decided to skip the nano, cycle some dry rock in my spare 55 gal and move forward on getting ready for the 90 gallon.

First purchase was this. Plumbed into the water in laundry so waste line fills washing machine. Still need a big container on wheels for storing good water, hauling buckets for now

My husband loaned me a stand to put the 55 gal rock cycling tank on

Check out the sweet mirrored background on this tank. This tank will become the sump once I order the 90 gal and my husband cuts a whole for plumbing into the basement.

This is the stand for the 90 gal. It's made from salvaged legs of 1900s pool table. I'm gonna pull off the messed up veneer

Bought 54 1/2 pounds dry rock today. Will add another 20# or so of live rock from LFS once I transfer to 90 gal.

Ordered Jebao RW-15 powerhead which should be here in a couple of days
