    Tank has been up and running for a month now but here is a rundown. Got the setup from one of my customers for free the best dea l ever :D . Tank was in rough shape when I got. It hasn't had a water change in close to a year. There is a clown and a coral beauty angelfish that came with it.

    Here is a pic prior to pick up.

    First thing was getting the tank moved. Pumped water into A 32G trash can. Then transferred live rock from tank to tote full of water then from tote to trash can in truck. Netted fish drained tank keeping roughly 90g of water.

    Here is a pic of everything loaded up on the trailer.

    Got everything home scrubbed tank and sump clean. Unfortunatly I had to use the 90g of old water to refill some of the tank for the live rock and fish. Got rock and fish transferred dropped the 2 power heads in and started mixing my water. The salinity was at 1.016 when I got the tank so I slowly got it raised to 1.021. I plan on getting it to 1.024 over time.

    Here is a pic of the tank now its a work in progress.

    I almost forgot the remodel to fit another massive tank in my living room. Basically I removed a old wood burning stove. Removed a sliding glass door from the living room. Removed a window from the kitchen and installed it in the living room then installed a single door where the window was in the kitchen. Took 2.5 days
    a total of 35 hours not bad for a weekend job.

    Here are some pics of the remodel.

    Have a look at craigslist and check out your local reef club. There's always someone breaking down a tank that has good used stuff for sale, way cheaper than you could get new.
