75 gal uprade
 
I finally upgraded! I purchased a used 75 gal set up. Drilled with a 10 gal sump. The tank has some coraline algae die off on the back glass that i was unable to scrap of. Should I worry about it or just leave it? Today I finished painting the stand and the back of the tank. Tomorrow I will be transferring everything from my current 30 gal tank. My current is old and not clean so I will be adding new sand. Can my existing fish and soft corals go in immediately? My new tank will be going in the same place as the current tank. Any suggestions on making this transfer easier would be great! Thanks!

jut leave the dead coralline. it won't hurt anything. i would move the old tank out and put the new tank behind it. check the parameters for about a week before adding your livestock, to make sure you don't have a spike.
was this used 75 you bought running when you bought it? did it have live rock?

No wasn't running. He upgraded to a 120 gal. No live rock included.

Well it's finally finished! Just waiting on the sand to settle. My fish from old tank are in a quarantine tank until it clears. At this point I only have 46 lbs of live rock. Will keep adding more every paycheck until I have enough. Lol. Will post pictures of the tank soon!

You just hate those skimmers don't you? :D I do too. Originally bought one for my 40g, not only did it not work well after a few days but but the piece connecting the air inlet tubing to the pump broke off with ease. Ugh. Never worked the same even trying to put the air tube directly in a different way.
