I don't have a thread on here about my current 75G tank, but I'll be sure to post some pictures later to show what I am upgrading from.
Reason for the upgrade is my wife wants another fish. She fell in love with a small 2" Chevron Tang at the LFS Pets R Inn and said we have to get it. Since we have no more room in the 75G I told her we'd have to upgrade and she is totally supporting the ides just so she can have her fish (YAY!).
I have lots of equipment already as I have been buying for the upgrade for at least a year, just never had soupport for it. Here's the equipment plan:
Main Tank: 125G RR W/Corner Overflows
Sump: 75G sump (chambers as follows Skimmer, Fuge/prop, Return)
Lighting: 4' IC660 T-5 retro and a 20K ReefKoi LED for the last 2'
Skimmer: MSX 200 NW
Returns: 2x Marineland 4500
Flow: Closed Loop powered by a Reeflo Dart and OM 4 way (No powerheads)
Project timeline: I am hoping to have water in the tank and inhabitants moved over the weekend before or the weekend after Thanksgiving. I don't know if I am all that fond of transferring then leaving for 4 days so it will probably be after.
Many pics will be taken along the way as I still need to build the stand, canopy, and sump. I also need to re-seal the dart and do all the plumbing.
** Tonight I am drilling the tank, wish me luck. 2" bulkhead going into the back of the tank to feed the Dart.
