Well my hunting for a stand was kinda successful. I found one that will fit everything for 189$ BUT the skimmer cup will just barely have room to be taken off. So the next stand up has plenty of room on top for the skimmer cup but its $269. i think I;m gonna go with the $269 one. Just need to save some money somehow. lol They are both made of real wood, not composite and are fully assembled so to speak. The expensive one has a flat top too, it's not just the frame ones, but I'll have to drill a hole in the top part for the drilled holes to go through and run my plumbing. THIS I can do. hehe...

So maybe this week or next week I guess i;ll get the stand.

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

Oh the stocking! I;m gonna have fun with that. Still trying to see if a harlequin tusk would be ok in the 90g.

Anyone have one?

Nice to hear. Keeping up with this has made me more focused on doing my 210. Found a new Lfs and just got 267lbs of dry rock and got the gf to make a list of fish and coral she wants. Will be starting a thread once I get home and get the rock layed out. Going to be a fun ride I think.

I know I'm jumping the gun a bit but I'm starting to think about the future of this tank.

I plan on having 100lbs of rock total, yeah I know, not enough but that's what I'm planning on. I want the fish to be the showcase here not the rockwork and since there will never be any corals in here I think it should be fine.

I was thinking of ordering 100lbs of base rock and putting 50 in this new tank and removing about 50lbs form my 125g and adding it into the 90 as well, then using the rest of the 50lbs of base rock to the 125g to become live.

This should considerably cut my cycling time down I'm thinking and I'll be introducing coralline into the 90g as well. Cause to be honest, I think the 125g has TOO much purple, it's kinda distracting from all the coral and the fish even.

I know adding the base rock to 125 wont affect any parameters but what do you think I can expect in the 90g with 50lbs of LR and 50lbs of base? Maybe a slight spike? I've never had a real cycle when I've added live rock to one of my tanks from another, maybe a slight increase in ammonia and then straight to nitrates.

does this sound about right? I know I won't be able to immediately start adding fish to the 90 and I still have to finish stocking my 125g and the 20g rimless still so they would be my priorities. Although adding one fish to the 90g might be a possibility just to keep things running and interesting. I expect the plumbing issues to take quite a while to resolve anyways. LOL

Any thoughts guys?

Thanks so much! i appreciate the views!

Sounds like a plan! Did you use purple up on your 125g?
