Well... I tried. I said 65 gallon, she said 50.

Next best thing... compromise. Ordering a 58 Gallon Oceanic, reef ready! I realize this tank is not going to hold a tang since it's still a 36" foot print, but I ended up with a tank nearly double the size, and an Oceanic again no less.

As for lighting, I am not ordering the canopy with the tank, going to go with a 36" power compact for lighting. All the 36" PC's seem to be 2x96. This gives me around 3.3 wpg. I assume this will be decent if and when I ever do decide to add some corals. Won't be anytime soon.

I ordered/received my Remora last week (awesome skimmer by the way). Now I wish I had waited so I could have ordered an in-sump AquaC since I'm getting a reef ready tank.

As for the transfer into the new tank... any suggestions? I have no live stock besides my LR... I was going to transfer all the water as well since my cycle is complete and top off the remaining 28 to 30 gallons with new water. Will I end up with another cycle doing this?

AB, opportunity only knocks once. Hold out. "You want Tang...we need 90 gal". Don't let this opportunity pass you by.

I'm thinking that if the die off/cycle has already occurred with the current rock, and you're just transferring with the same water and adding new mix, there'd not be another cycle.

As for the tangs....
