I;m already figuring out what can fit in the space the 55g is in now. I "guess" I could get a piece of furniture for the fining room OR a piece of furniture that happens to have a fish tank on it.

I would be very limited though, only have 4 feet of space and thats pushing it. I think a 90 or 120 tall would fit.....

Ahhh the joys of MTS.....
Get a coffee table fish tank!

I have some serious issues. Just emailed a guy on CL about a fully loaded sw 55g tank. i couldnt resist. i could always use the live rock and other stuff and sell the tank and stand.

My b/f is gonna kill me!

Ha ha ha ha. That's ok. I just talked my friend out of a nano for his first ever sw build into a new 100g. And into buying a used 90 with stand. Top. Sump. Lights. And skimmer for $400. And the new 100g he is going to be getting for stand and tank is 500. Looks like I'll be buying his 90g soon.

This is a perfect example of the sheer size of careys love for aquatic life. She is breaking down and selling a 55g, a size that alot of hobbyists wish they had lol

By buying a trigger fish and being. Oh no I can't put it in the main tank cus it will wipe out the reef. And she wants a picaso trig more then anything. And a dragon wrasse. So I het both. Oh wait now the dragon is getting to big for the 100. Need to get a 150 for him. And we will just put it in the guess bedroom. Well by this point she will figure out what I'm doing and get fed up.

Wow. That's sad lol
I think you got it all wrong. Look at my tag line. That is how you get what you want. LOL

I plan on taking what I want from the setup and gear and selling the rest. It has a uv sterilizer too. No lights though but the stand and tank look clean and it has a sump and overflow.

My buddy might want the overflow and sump already adn the the tank and stand is worht a couple hundred. I can use what little live rock there is too. Plus who knows hoe many goodies he has been saving up. hemntioned chemicals and other stuff too.

gonna go see it today for sure though. Cant wait.
