Tank is finally running!! So far so good. I put the dogface puffer and lunar wrasse in tonight. I'll transfer a couple more over the weekend if all continues well. I used about 100 gallons of water from the 150 gallon tank in the 300 gallon tank to ease the transition. And of course all the live rock. Same salinity too. Hoping it continues to be a positive journey.

New 300 gallon tank

Here's a pic from today. Waiting to put the hood and doors on until I get the rest if the fish transferred over. I like the LED rope lights on it which I was unsure of. I bought a Koran angel yesterday. It's eating well and seems good so far. My LFS called me this afternoon and asked if I wanted a shark egg. The original guy that ordered it a month ago no longer wanted it. They're seeking it to me for very cheap. Can't complain about that. It has about three weeks to go before hatching.[ATTACH]212907

Ive heard that sharks need round tanks to keep them from smacking into the corners of tanks, what are you gonna do with the 150? A QT or holding tank?

The 150 will be a QT/holding tank for a while. Haven't decided exactly. Might get less aggressive fish for it as well. I'm not taking it down though. As for the shark, I've heard that too. We'll see how it goes. There's nobody else in town that seems interested in it with a big enough tank for it they said. It'll be an interesting adventure. Never hatched a fish from an egg before. Watching a lot of YouTube videos on it to learn what to do.

Must feel good to have the biggest tank in town ehh? I think you would be ok with a shark but i am no expert. This tank is giant so why not? My lfs has cortez rays, 2 bamboo cat sharks, and 4 banded sand sharks. I really like them and wish to have some sharks one day

Are the lights all up? I only ask because the picture looks like only half the tank is lit.

I don't know about the biggest tank in town, but one of the few that can handle (barely) a shark and has the right type of fish to be compatible. As for the lights, no they are not all the way on yet. It just has a couple cheap strip lights going right now. The hood I'll put on in a week or two has MH's and rope LED lighting.
