Thanks! Ill check it out... is there a recommend LFS around?
You’re welcome...Pretty much what Mikeneedsahobby said. I’ve bought a lot of fish from tropcoruim. The owner is great. Fish are usually priced on the tank. It’s the corals that aren’t priced that great. Not much of a coral selection either. But a cool place to take your kids to see the shark tanks/other big fish alone. And plan on quarantining and and pre treating for ich. His tanks have it like most.

Hey there, I grew up in Northville/Novi area. As someone mentioned, Fish Doctors in Ypsi is alright.
Press’s is where it’s AT, trust me it’s worth the 1.5 hr drive out there. Their SW selection is huge and they have a ton of beautiful displays.

MAN! Sweet build! I'm in Holt. Good to see more Michigan reefers. You're in a great spot for reefing. Lots of coral folks around you. I agree with samnaz, Pruess is a awesome store if you haven't been. Let me know when you're ready, and I'll give you some welcome back to the hobby Acros!

It's really taken some time; I'm trying to be patient. Im finishing my basement at the same time, so that's no helping either...

Siberwulf's wife: Are you sure 90g isn't too big?

Me reading this: Hon, come here.
Are you SCUBA certified? If not it sounds like you have time to get certified before the tank is ready to setup.

Kidding. Sort of. :)
LOL.. I plan on getting a regulator set up for cleaning. my daughter (11) cannot wait to try it...

Michiganreefers.com has a lot of used equipment and corals for sale. Not much happening on the forums though. I have a coral FS thread under Biggestfish. All the locals have been great I’ve met. Most everything sells fast on there. Plenty of guys looking to trade corals also. Feel free to reach out at anytime. I have over 80 SPS alone.
Do you know any folks with tank moving experience locally?

I used a moving company that specializes in large safes and pianos. There is also a company named " DOLLY" that provides manpower only
Your tank is nearly the same imprint of a 1500g I have awaiting me in Florida. Mine is slightly used.
Who built yours ?
