Oh that would be too easy. LOL The tank backs up to a window so I'd have to mount whatever to the actual stand. I'm working on ideas in my head how it will work. I also will have to move the tank out a few inches since I only have about 4 inches to play with right now. And to the left of the tank, within 4 inches is another fish tank of course.

But your idea is what I'm playing with for now, if only I knew a metal worker who could weld stuff....

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

Thank you! I was just now feeding the tank since the goby was out and the barnacle blenny is awesome! I'm glad I waited for him. he just chills in his barnacle and juts out really quick to grab food, and big pieces too.

I'll be rockscaping tomorrow again probably, everything is just falling over because of the flow and the crabs. :-( I need toorder my new powerheads by monday still cant decide between the 425's and 550;s....I'm leaning towards the 550's though.Also gonna order some frag mounts so i can start learning how to frag. thats' gonna be a whole nother thread LOL

Figure I can make a few bucks at it. Then maybe I can find a 90g on cl and get that. OR just get another tank and keep flipping them for cash.

I am soooo tempted, theres a 14g nano cube on right now for $100 bucks and I know i can get it for like $60 but I'm out of tank space and I ahve no idea what I'd put into it. LOL
Buy and sell. You can use the extra money on corals for your 125. Oh and where do you get your corals they look stunning.

Local and not so local stores. I was in Orlando yesterday buying that 55g and figured why not do some searching, theres a very high end coral shop with lots of fabulous stuff. And they actually know what it all is. All rimless tanks and leds nothing cheap as far as fish. They had a midas blenny that I so want in my tank but they were asking $55 which I think is absurd.

I went to daytona today and was fish hunting since I get my fish almost entirely from one store.

I bet the one store ships, the one i went to in orlando. Where are you located? have you search far and wide for a good store? You could even make a day of it, I'd drive probably 4 hours each way if I was to find a spectacular store. orlando for me is an hour drive and so is daytona.
