240g + 300g in wall build
I finally started the beginning phase of my in wall setup idea. The idea is to move the wall 4ft back to give more space in the living room. The wall will be the front part of the stand so the tanks will be flush with the wall and have picture frame molding around them. The floor will have 3/4 plywood on top. Under the floor... has beams made by sandwitching two 2x6 with plywood in the middle. Those are supported by concrete blocks to the ground on every beam. That was the hard part!
300g - 6ftx3ft - Eeel, Banded shark and stingray
240g - 7ftx2ft - Reef with typical reef fish
sump - custom designed to support both tanks, thinking fluidized sump
Algae scrubber - custom designed with ability to expand
I forgot to mention I hate manual labor lol. So here is to the fun *cheers*

definitely gonna follow this one! Any ideas for a stocking plan yet?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

The 240 will have lion fish, puffer (maybe, he keeps eating my one coral), blue tang, yellow tang, a few other typical reef fish... pretty much transfer the fish from the 120g to the 240. I already sold the 120 setup. After that I will add some more fish but I don't know what else at this time. I always take suggestions

Worked on the wall a little this past weekend. My father and his friend were helping me when I left Sunday. I am hesitant on the how the wall will hold the tanks at this moment. Hard to have others see my vision especially when they don't have aquariums. I know the front wall will support the weight but its not perfect level. That 2x6 has a slight bow going across the entire thing. I am not sure what I can do at this moment to fix that.
