    No freak'n way

    I am so sorry to hear about this, that is just awful.

    Maybe you should think of it this way, you can now take this opportunity to change the things about the old set-up that you did not like, but could not change before. Maybe a tank up-grade as well ???

    I'm sorry to hear about the set-back
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    Thanks for the condolences...

    Cliff I'd love to get a pre-drilled 75 gal however I'm a little tight for cash with senior year coming up and if I wanna restock it'll take some bucks... so unfortunately I believe I'll be sticking with my current set up... I thought about drilling it... but I'm just gonna stick with my siphoning overflow more just so I can get what's left back into the DT and get it all situated (not super happy about it but that's the way it goes) plus I wanna keep in mind that I'm moving out soon after senior year so I don't wanna have a massive set-up that'll be a pita to move... so it'll most likely be lightly stocked and be able to be broken down and transported rather simply (that's the goal at least lol)

    Live and learn I guess... I'm excited to restock but this is definitely a humbling experience to have something go to s**t that fast
    55g Long --> After 18mo of doing well the tank crashed during moving. Most likely cause: Flatworm Die-off... won't start another until after moving... Likely not until late 2013

    20g Long --> currently concoting a build plan

    Check out the journal to follow my 20g SW tank

    I have, that's actually what I was kicking around today... I was kicking around just doing a 20 gal or something nice and small that way I don't have to completely take down and put it back up

    I think I'm just wavering on the confidence to maintain a smaller tank like that... so that and the lack of lighting are what's holding me up... however if I did do a nano I'd most likely switch to LED lighting (which is exciting haha)

    The only thing holding me up is that I love the big (well big to me) 55 haha and I'd like to try a nem again and have some other stocking options... but I have to be realistic so idk

    Ohhhh, DIY Led ;)


    I'm sure whatever you decide on you're gonna have an awesome tank mate.

    You've learned loads since starting that tank.

    Started re-filling the tank last night, added the rock from the rubber maids, which I did a FW soak in for a minute or so each to get rid of any remaining flatworms or anything of the like that could cause me an issue down the road

    I have about half of my rock back in the tank and the tank is a whole fresh batch of SW so I'm letting that mix and just hang out for the time being I'm going to test the params tonight to make sure there isn't a huge amount of amonia leeched into any of them that the tank can't handle

    GOOD NEWS: There is one surviver of the screw up on my part... the Green Clown Goby is alive... I found him in the bottom of one of the rubber maids I emptied out so that's good news and makes me a little happier

    The coral is holding but I don't wanna plop them in just yet I wanna make sure I'm not gonna kill them by putting them in since they seem to be holding steady in the rubber maid I transferred them to

    I need to do a little PVC work and it should be back in business... still gotta figure out how I wanna hang my lighting or build a canopy but that's for later
