    Thank you, Natalie! I'm hoping it will go fairly smoothly and that it won't take all day.

    Well look at who the reefer madness took a hold of!

    Glad to see everything is going so well and that you're in the middle of a fairly sweet upgrade. Just make sure you're using the correct type of silicone and not that GE Type II stuff that I had used and killed a couple corals with.

    Thank you!
    Believe me, I checked, double checked and triple checked the silicone! I even re-checked the tube again this morning before we started moving anything. I definitely remember all the problems you had. I hope your tank is doing well!

    Start to almost finished - 4 1/2 hours.
    If I hadn't cracked the center brace when I was putting the rocks back in, I'd be done. But now we have to figure out how to fix that, because the lids need that support and I can't use my lights without the lids.
    The contractor is here now to go over our estimate and contract for our home project. After he leaves, I'm hoping we can get to work on the brace and I can be done.
    I'm tired, y'all.

    Well, we had planned on a move at the beginning of the year and I had sold off almost all my aquarium stuff in anticipation of the move. Life threw us another curve ball and we haven't moved...yet. We still want to move in a few months, so I haven't really made an attempt to rebuild my aquarium stuff. I'll update a couple of my threads for the remaining tanks/animals for those interested. It's been quite a while since I've really contributed here on the forum so it's not going to be like a big return of the Boofmiester as Spardas likes to call me haha I might have something worthy of attention towards the fall after we have moved but for now my setups are running on bare minimum with very little stock.

    Glad to see you guys are enjoying the saltwater stuff. It feels like just yesterday that we were trying to push you into doing something other that a FOWLR tank and now here you are with all kinds of goodies and a new setup in the works :)

    Very cool!

    No bueno about the center brace. I hope you can fix that. I had my own issues with a failed brace a couple years back and ended up getting rid of that tank because I couldn't repair it sufficiently.

    Bummer about the move delay. Hopefully everything will fall into place soon and you can get settled.

    Brace update: It ain't pretty, but it holds up the glass lids. That's good enough for me and it was an inexpensive fix. My husband wanted to cut the pvc pipe in half lengthwise to make it lower profile, but I told him not to bother. He also wanted to cut the bolts off flush with the nuts, again I told him not to bother. That's something we can do later if they become a distraction.
    First FTS of the 65g, up and running. It will be a while before I have the aquascape situated, but I think the fish and corals have been disturbed enough for a while. I'm hoping the micro bubbles from the skimmer will calm down after it's broken in. The bubbles from the HOB filter waterfall isn't bothering me too much.
    My husband and I think I'll probably end up adding sand, but I do like being able to move the rock around on the HDPE without hearing that scraping on glass sound.
