    Default My 120 Gallon Reef

    I know this might be off to an early start to a tank journal, but Im just really excited

    Today I bought a 120 gallon tank that I will make into a reef tank.

    I've been thinking about another tank so when I found this one, it just seamed right. Apparently someone ordered it from our SW LFS but when it arrived they did not want it anymore. I could not believe it was exactly what I was looking for. Because it was a cancelled order, I got it at a great price. The store owner even agreed to hold it until May when I will be able to work in my unheated garage and build a stand for it

    I got a 120 gallon tank, 4 X 2 X 2 with a built in corner overflow and the back panel is drilled for the return line. Its a euro braced tank, and the back panel has a black acrylic sheet attached to it.

    I'm planning to make this a (mostly) LPS reef tank with a moderate stocking of reef safe fish.

    When I get the tank home, Ill post a pick

    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    Congrats Cliff!. Can't wait to see it come together.
    Gas mileage isn't everything OIIIIIIIO
    Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
    Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
    Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.

    A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.

    Thanks everyone

    I'm actually working on my stocking list right now

    Lady Hobbs: I actually was thinking of that, until my wife saw the look on my face and asked the guy at the store to hold the tank for us

    She knows me really well
