Glad someone has been paying attention, it goes a long way to understanding this affliction.

Zagz - I just found out last night that Dr. Phishtank is sponsoring a symposium. The premise is what will 20 aquaritst do if left in a room with a 10 gal tank for 8 hours. Apparently the results of the last session were a little skewed, all the participants donated tanks to Dr. Phishtank.

If you have 9 other tanks, why would you need to cycle it? Couldn't you transplant some substrate to get it jumpstarted after the move?

Spring? LOL - it's the middle of February; how far away is "spring" for you up there in Saskatchewan, Canada, eh? (couldn't resist! :P)

ROFL spring is an eternity away for us.

That darn Dr. Ivana Phishtank is no help at all! LOL.

I wouldn't have to cycle the tank in the conventional way, I'd swap some substrate and filter media. Just an expression I guess. I've already planned where it would fit into the kitchen.

Husband has contracted MTS, as a matter of fact, he feeds my MTS! He tells me about fishtanks to get me to buy them. I bet if I was raiding his bank account he'd feel differently LOL.

Tell me the MTS is not equally labor intensive as the first tank. I have a 180gal tank, stand, filter, pumps, light etc in storage but have not set it up because I am afraid it would be to much work with multiple large tanks.

Can't tell you that Brenden esp with SW. I find it takes more time but I enjoy it and don't mind a bit. It actually takes more time to feed them every morning than I expected. Of course I must converse with each tank as I feed it LOL.

You have more willpower than I would, having a 180 gal just not being used. 8O

Not sure what I want to do with it yet. I have thought about a SW predator tank or a seahorse tank. I have tenative plans to "maybe" put in a new 2,000 gal FOWLR tank when I add on to the house soon. I am just trying to make up my mind.

Yeah. I have been talking to a tank builder about designs. It would probably be a "L" shape. It would have to be a FO because my lighting bill for my 525 is rough so I can imagine what it would cost for a 2,000. Unless my 525 becomes the sump? HMMMM

I am thinking of opening my own fish store. Sea World is too far away.
