    Wooo new thread for the new tank!

    Including a link here to the old tank where I started my reef building, so that anyone interested can see things from the very beginning: Ye Olde 60g

    Yesterday my bf and I cleaned the whole apartment and prepared the new tank space... we now have a little sitting area facing the tank with a futon and table... basically my new favorite place in the whole world. I fell asleep watching my fishies last night hehe.

    I'll post shots of the tank and my new little "tank nook" as soon as everything is set up.

    Wonderful. So fun setting up a new tank. The only problem I can see is that it's not in my living room!

    Your going to love the options you get with a 120 gallon tank. Lots of room for rock while still leaving a good amount of swimming space for the fish
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    120's might be the best mix between a realistically sized tank and something that's still be enough to not have a real limitation on your stocking :)

    Can't wait for the build to start!!
    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

    Yes I am super excited

    We have decided that the first addition to the new tank (once everything has been moved over and had a chance to settle in and stabilize) will be a trigger, and I'm pretty set on this one:

    Bursa Triggerfish

    (Rhinecanthus verrucosus, which is actually called "Blackbelly Triggerfish" by most sources). It's similar to the Humuhumu (in fact our LFS has it labeled incorrectly as a Humu Picasso trigger), but max size is 9" rather than 10". Plus there are some small ones at my LFS that I'm eyeing.

    After that, possibly will add a yellow eye kole tang, but I'll figure that out when I get there.

    New tank was delivered last night! And I have my work cut out for me in terms of scrubbing it out :)

    There are a lot of salt deposits on the inside (mostly on the back/overflows, not so much on the front and side glass), but I have a big bottle of white vinegar and I plan to get to scrubbing tonight with vinegar, hot water and, if it comes to it, a razor blade.

    Once that is done and I get everything hooked up, I'll do a test fill with tap water for leaks, drain it, and start the process of the change over. Pics to come!
