done with 90% of the plumbing!
Pvc is expnsive!!! I've spent close to $40 so far to get the overflows done. Neutral

LEDs were supposed to be here yesterday but they got delayed so I wont have them till next wedesday. A little frustrating but I have some other lighting I can use until then..

Gotta find two more people to help me move this tank, anyone? I pay in frags or part a/b supplements (however much a/b you need) Wink

That's great, Eric! thumbs up And, yeah, I know PVC gets expensive, and sucks that the LEDS got delayed... Sad

Nicholas volunteers himself for the task. I might be of help...not sure if I can actually lift an aquarium that big... don\'t know

Oral support? Very Happy

I got one of my other friends too so I'm thinking one more person and we should be ok. (4 of us total)

I'll only be moving the tank about 15ft so it should be too big of a deal



Huge thanks to Nicholas btw!!

Aww man, that sucks cry. Sorry Eric.

I guess that's one of the bummers of salt water; you usually don't have much in terms of remains or always find out what happened.

Did find the bones of one of my old anthias. Kinda cool Smile

I also realized that I have 4 inches of sand in my tank. and it is DENSE. might have to get rid of half for the new tank.. anyone looking for sand?

You might just feel that way due to the length of the tank as compared to it being a cube shaped one.
