I am getting a vortech later this month for circulation. Will that work?

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Any thing will as long as the top of the water ripples. Just make sure the bottom has circulation too.

Soooo i was busy tonight. LOL

I emptied the 20g and moved it across the room and then refilled it. I think it will sell better with the live rock and everything still running. I think I'll give it 2 weeks then I guess I will take it down and out it in the garage til it sells.

Also got the biocube pushed out of the way and the spot is now open for the 60g to go in. Gonna try to get the b/f to do it tonight with me. We'll see, he had to help with the moving so he may not wanna do more. I'll try to convince him otherwise it will be tomorrow.

Hoping to start the plumbing tomorrow as well. The only thing I still need to get is a 5g tank for the ATO reservoir and pick up the skimmer. Not going nearly as fast as I wanted but I guess I should drag it out since it's so much fun!! LOL

Thanks! You are a constant source of encouragement and I appreciate that!

So far no luck moving the tank from the garage, but the b/f went out so maybe when he gets back I can grab him. lol

Finally the tank and stand are in place in the living area. It "just" fit between the sliding doors and the windows. lol

Gonna leave the light fixture off the mounts for now so I can add the sand, water and rock and have room to work.

Here is where it will be sitting, the biocube thats to the right will hopefully get sold soon as I get the critters moved to this tank.

Great! Glad it is in the house! When do you plan to add rock and sand?
