how much my wife loves me 220 gallon tank

ok guys and girls lets start this with background of how this all came along .

back 2 or so years ago i had a beautiful 55 gallon set up . me and the wife decided that we wanted to raise are boys in the small country town we was raised in so we was going to move from AZ back to IL . when talking to the moving company they wanted another 400 $ just to move the tank on top of the 2500 we was already up to. so at that point i had to let her go .

once we moved back into Illinois i picked up a 90 gal from a friend that needed it out of his house because he was moving and was going to ditch it . well in this time i was looking for a new job since we moved back and the wife was the only one working and all of a sudden out of nowhere her appendix burst and she was out of work for awhile with neither one of us working are savings was going quick so i sold that set up to catch up on bills . after all that i finely hit a good job and now life is back on

now the 6th of feb was my bday and my wife was wondering what she could get me that i would love . she said she had been noticing me playing around on Craigslist looking for another set up . she new i misses my tanks and it was something me and my boys do togather so she surprised me and found this 220 gallon tank with most of the set up for 850$ . its all only a year old but the guy wanted out of the hobby . so today i took me a two hr drive one way and picked up my new set up . i love my family so much . cant wait to get it set up but right now we are looking for a new house so its going to be after we move before i get it running . sorry about the bad pics got to charge the camera just couldn't wait to share this .

sorry for the long rant but i hope you guys enjoy

thanks everyone for the complements . i to am having a hard time not getting it ready to start putting water back in it but i know we are going to be moving here soon to a new house so i have to hold on . i was going to jump in tonight and start getting it clean but it was a ruff day at work that just pulled all the energy out of me and on top of that yesterday when picking up the trailer to haul it home my truck broke down so after a long day at work had to head to the shop i had take my truck to get it back on the road . luckey it was just a broken ground wire that would not let it start lol .
