I decided I'm not going to do corals in my 55 gallon, so stickin to FOWLR. When we get a house I'm planning on at least a 125 gallon, MAYBE a 180... Then I'll start to have some fun. We are going to be moving in a couple years, id hate to establish a sweet coral tank just to take it down 8-(

Well a couple of years is a long time to own corals, you could grow out some nice colonies before you have to move and they would fill in your 125-180 gallon reef tank very nicely! just a thought...

But isn't moving a salt water tank a huge pain... Meaning don't you need to basically re-cycle your tank because of the sanded getting so disturbed? I'm sure moving fish is a big enough pain let alone all the corals...!

No really a big pain..... Unless you can't keep your rock submerged completely to guarantee 0 die off. Just use new sand. And put some biomedia or sponges in your filter an put it in the filter of the new tank to make sure you have enough nitrifying bacteria.
