I think a goal of TWO 125g tanks and a biocube is reasonable. I won't need anymore tanks if I have those. 125g is ALOT of tank buddy. I'm still stocking the fw one.

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

Haha I'm actually only a few hours away from carey myself, but if I'm going for a 4ft tank I'm getting a 75G

You didn't have 7 tanks to upkeep. It's ALOT of work. And they are all new pretty much so even more work to get and keep them stable. I will still have 6 tanks now and it's alot to do. I truly spend half my day doing fish stuff. Either testing, pwc's, cleaning or putting away all my fish gear. LOL

My electric bill just came yesterday and it was only 122. that's an increase of about $6 a month to run all my stuff.

Yeah, I shoulda gone with the 75g in retrospect but I'm pretty happy with my 55g.

So today is the day! The cube is out for delivery with UPS so it's just a matter of maybe 4 hours now. LOL Finally.

I am gathering all my stuff and making water. Here's where we stand now. I know some of you like pictures so here's a few....

Spot all cleaned off for the cube.



Water making time!



The rock, here there and everywhere lol





I haven't tested the water the LR is in, in either tank or bucket. I wonder if the ammonia is still there...maybe i should check?
