Upgrading 36bowfront to a 55g

Just got my new stand for my 55 so the build is on. New sand should be arriving today or tomorrow. Going to be using a 20g sump and a 10g fuge. Till I get those built will be using two emperor 350s. Inhabitants will be two green spot puffers splendid dottyback and either a flame angel or coral beauty and there are two chocolate chip starfish in the 36 that will be joining also thinking about some kind of hawkfish and something for a bottom dweller

A lot of people tell you the 55 footprint is the best, but honestly I love mine.
It's a new system and all, but scaping was easy. It's just tall and long enough. And there is still enough room for fish to swim in circles and go under the rocks.. So much better then my 20g was.

Took a little longer than expected but rock is in and fish are acclimating. Unfortunately one of my puffers went tile surfing and I didn't notice him RIP puff.

After a month tank is doing great added a file fish to try and help with my terrible aptasia problem and two days later not a single one was left. Couldn't believe it I have been killing 5-15 a day just to see twice as many a couple days later. He is doing great and will eat anything I put into the tank including a toadstool leather that was stuck to one of the rocks.
