Oh yeah. The footprint is really nice. I don't really have a reason not to upgrade right now..

Well. I can't hang any lights from
The ceiling from now on. Apparently it is "unappealing". Guess I'll have I find a light that doesn't hang from there.

Alright! So, I searched through Craigslist. Took me calling an aquarium a couple different names, but I have found it. It's a55g tank, with a pump lights and sand. Also what seems to be an overflow box, but I'll drill it anyway. I messages the seller for more details. It's $179. I'll have that much by the end of this weekend, along with the funds for some rock. I don't know, but I think this is on a be an upgrade.

The goby has found a new home. I left the tank bare bottom because I knew an upgrade was coming...

At the end of the day, the two would have costed about the same, after looking through stocking and all. It will really just end up boiling down to whatever footprint I like better when I get to petco at around 6:00.

Pry will. I've never seen a 40b in person, so well see. I think I'm going to order the remainder if the rock I need from either Reef Cleaners, or amazon.
