If anyone local has any containers I can use during the move to hold some water, live rock, and corals, it would be much appreciated. So far i bought 2-32 gallon heavy duty garbage pails. definitely going to need at least another 120 gallons worth of space. Figure I need enough for 120 gallons of fresh mixed salt for the new tank, and also need to hold everything from the 90 so I can move the 90 out of the way and put the 120 in the same spot.

Actually, I think i may have found a new location to have this tank. This will allow me to set up the new tank while the old one continues to operate. Seems to me like it will be the best way to do it allowing the least amount of stress on the livestock.

still in acclimation phase. but so far i think theyre pretty cool. They put off a lot less stray light than my MH lights put off. So it seems like they are much dimmer but when you look inside the tank, the brightness is pretty much the same. I really like the ability to have a sunrise and sunset and some moonlights which I wasnt able to do with the MH which were just on or off.

I'm going to be going to home depot some time in the next few days to get plumbing parts. Does anyone know what fitting to use for the jebao pump? I had seen a video that these pumps need a british threading adapter but cant find them online anywhere.

If you take the pump to Reimans hardware on Victory they will have the fittings you need. I got the fitting there for my pumps.

if home the 1.5" npt from home depot doesnt work, ill have to check that place out. I've been pushed back a little bit, home depot trip should come on tuesday, plumbing should happen on wednesday and hopefully get some sand and water in the tank by friday.
