One last shot of my 45 gallon aquarium before I tear it down to put up the 125 gallon. Been a great learning experience and I was very happy with the way it all came together. But, I am very excited to "Go Big or Go Home!".

Goodbye 45. You will be missed until you are fully replaced

Thanks. I started out knowing nothing about this hobby and got lucky when I found this site. Most everything I have learned came from here. I spend more time on a local club site now because I have gotten to know the people and because I can purchased equipment and livestock at a fraction of the price. But my heart is still with AA.

LOL Just a bit. That is where I got the stock tank to use. It would have set me back weeks if I had to buy one.

Looks good! What is that SPS in the high-left? It looks great (nice and healthy with new growth)!

That is a Blue Tip Stag Horn. When I first joined the local club, a guy posted a thread called Pay It Forward. He said when he got in this hobby, people just gave stuff to each other so he wanted to help out some one just getting started. I took him up on it and he gave me 4 nice frags. That was one of them. He has since become a good friend. A couple of months ago his tank crashed. (turned out to be a broken heater frying everything). When he got it all straightened out he had nothing. I was able to give him back a big chunk of that as well as several other cutting from my tank. Just shows to go you, what comes around goes around.
