Yes thats a good idea! After i bought my tank on cl, i found better, bigger tanks cheaper! I wish i had waited a little longer, so i think you should! I will be following you build for 6 months i guess! Hahah

Haha! It's gonna be a process but I'm so excited! I started a 20 gallon fresh and it's just not the same as a reef to me! They are just amazing! I could stare at one for hours!!

Acrylic scratches pretty easily, but if you check out that tank and there are few scratches thats a pretty good deal IMO. If there was a stand it would be better

I wish! I think that's gonna be my biggest hard ship at the moment. I found this one. What do you think if I drilled it myself and had them keep the fish!

I too would wait for a 75 . Cl will pay off it takes a while. I almost spend 475 for a 150 gallon setup but I passed on it . A week later I got a 180 gallon for 175 bucks delivered to my house .

This seems decent? Any opinions. It's drilled so that saves me! And I'm very crafty so I'm fine with painting!

Also found a skimmer, I know I'll need one what do you think??

That tank looks like it's drilled weird. It appears to have a standpipe dead center in the tank. Unless my eyes deceive me, i would not want to deal with that.

Also, that skimmer is junk.
