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

wow and you just bought a 180 gallon :P

you can always have the sump shipped to her, but i don't know if it would be to large to have shipped

I'm still looking locally for a sump. I won't have any money til Monday though. :-( If I buy new I may just get a regular old berlin type sump. Still shopping!

And the tank is still holding!! It's been almost a week. I feel this is a good sign.

I am just aching to move the tanks around, I go in the garage and just stare at it. LOL Still trying to sell my 29g so I can't put the 125g into place until that happens. I will be dropping my price so hopefully someone will pick it up.

Carey, why don't you build a sump. There are 30-55 gallon tanks for dirt cheap, sometimes free on CL. Speaking of which, there is a guy in Tampa that posted a wanted ad for a 120 or larger with dual overflows, furniture, and preferably the sump and lights. His budget was free, lol. You have to have some nerve to expect people to offer you a large reef for free.

Lol, how much is the pool sand, I may have to consider this if I can save some substantial money. Are there any draw backs to using the pool sand?

I also found this in home depot. I think I like the texture better than the pool sand.

I've heard not to use play sand because of something that is in it. I don't remember what it was, I just got a big warning against play sand.
