I got welcomed twice somehow :)

 

I'm glad I found the link to here from a club forum post on Reef Central. I enjoyed the local reef club up in Wisconsin and hoped to find one here.  We are currently in the early stages of a 300g 96x30x25.  Still making equipment and design decisions and adding to my spreadsheet list, including rapidly rising costs.  We "hope" to get the tank itself ordered soon, but so far the quotes are running enough higher than we guessed that we may have to delay a few months to save up the difference :(  Fingers still crossed.  In the meantime, once we have a 100% "go" we can spend the downtime looking for used equipment or sales anyway.  The tank will eventually be mixed reef, but after all the start up costs there is no way we can afford to fully stock an 8 foot tank so it will start as FOWLR and corals added over time.  It will also let me delay on some of the equipment I'd like as well :)

 

Our previous tank was a 200g in-wall with another 150g total volume between sump and refugiums in the equipment room.  Before selling the house and moving we had to tear down and rebuild the wall.  At that time I stated that after a lifetime of maintaining aquariums, and the sadness of tearing down what was to be my final "Forever tank", I was done so we also sold all equipment :(  Now I wish I had kept most of it.  Even my old Neptune controller could fill in for a bit now!  "I'm done" lasted a year and a half before the reef bug jumped up and bit me again.

Happy to be here, and as it gets closer I'll be around more and hopefully also start making it to meetings (aka frag hunting).

Welcome to the area and the forum. Right now the forum is a little quite. It gets that way in the summer.

 

There are several of us in various stages of a build. kbass is doing the finishing touches on his. mdw is jut starting a 60g cube. We have a 180g that we are in the middle of (i need to post some pics later on). Good luck on your build.
