Too bad about the tank but all well with a new tank right?
I was half thinking of getting one of those replacement nanos onstaed of an rsm 130, can make it pretty clean looking by putting the pipes to a sump in that little compartment thats supposed to hoise everything.

For the 2 days I had rock and water in my cube i can say i really really liked it.

Grr still like 5 more days til I can resume my setting up. I'm guessing the bucket of lr is curing nicely havent tested it yet.
When I go to put everything back in will the lr have a die off again anyone think?

I also have a question about putting in a fuge/filter basket....
The fuge is for macro algae isnt it? Or is it for lr? I see they make tiny lights that can light the fuge so I figure its gotta grow something lol

Carey don't you just hate the wait? I'm either getting a 30G used from my LFS or a 55G used from craigslist. Either way I have to wait up to a month or more to set i up, need to get the flooring done in that room first.

The waiting is always a killa. lol Make sure you let us know which one you end up with. Hopefully the 55g.

i'm sitting here daydreaming about a 125g reef that i want to pick up before the end of the year. that will be my final tank. I just can't wait. I so want to get all the stuff now for it. i already have the filtration for it.

I've been close to getting a 125G too, but I decided to put it off for a long while. I want one so I can get myself a puffer I want. Now I have my 38G, 29G BioCube, 20G, and I'll have to see how the person replies to my email. They said the tank and stand are in good condtion, not great, no perfect. So I'm trying to figure out exactly what that means :p

Means you might get a good deal hopefully. As long as the tank is sturdy and the stand can hold it you can work with it.

I want the 125g so I can finally have my tang. I don't have the heart or nerve to put him in my 55g.

I already parted out everything onto eBay including the hood. I'm just gonna trash the tank. hoping i can make back some of the money. i could have re sold it on CL but I'd feel bad unloading a tank that leaks. bad enough I bought it lol
