Hey guys so here is a quick update of the progress! First of all, I wanted to thank everyone who offered up some frags I really do appreciate it and it's nice to have such an awesome community willing to help out when **** hits that fan for a local reefer. A couple of positives from this experience is that I was able to totally redo my aquascape and get a lot more room in the tank. It created way better areas for water flow, depth and I have a lot more room for CORALS ha ha!

More pics to come on progress in the up coming weeks. I will also post this on my tank thread because I want to keep the progress going there too.

Video update on the tank 3 weeks after the move!

Hi everyone, here is a quick update on the tank progress and where it stands now. It was literally three weeks from today where I moved and pretty much lost all of my corals. I wanted to give a special shout to a few awesome MR members that went out of their way to get me back up and running. Check out the video and please use this as a learning listen you don't want to experience hopefully some motivation for folks that are trying to get back in the hobby! Happy New Years everyone!

Just the kind words are more than enough bro. I appreciate it! I just want to let people know that you can always come back from disaster, I fortunate enough to have some awesome reefers that wanted to give me a bit of a heads start.

Thanks Vincent! For anyone interested to know how I got that large pile of rock work which will essentially NEVER fall over when doing work on the tank, I want to let you know that I used white fiber glass makers from home depot. They go for about $2 each and I only used 2 for the 220. Do not buy the orange kind because I they use some kind of extra protective material you do not want in your tank. My Blonde Naso is massive and one of the positives if this disaster was redoing my rock and making a lot more swimming room for him and creating space for corals to grow because that be came an issue during my last setup.

So all I did was drill a 1/4 inch whole (or find one) through the rock setup and because the fiber glass stick has some give it's great because you can create that overarching reef cliff. Here is a picture of it. Any questions, let me know!!

It’s been awhile since I posted any updates but I’m putting together a short YouTube video I promise to share very soon. It’s going to be the Tank 8 month update since the tank crash after I moved to Stamford. Here are a few photos though.
