Just moved to a new city and set up a new tank after moving my fish long distance. They all made it, I even re-quarantined them just be to sure parasites were not being introduced. After the tank finished cycling for 6 weeks, in they went, and I plan to get a couple more fishies! Current list is Dogface puffer, Koran Angel, Hippo Tang, Coral Beauty Angel, Lyretail Anthias, Royal Gramma, Yellow Watchman Goby, and a pair of clowns.

Set up. It's in place!

Slight setback with pinhole size leak in the overflow pipe. Swapped out for a new one.

The holding tank, after fish QT, while the main tank cycles. The only use I have found for artificial corals thus far lol!

My pride an joy puffer, "Bruno"

And after they went in 6 weeks later, Bruno loved chilling on the powerhead in the new tank, too :)

FTS once they were all in. Not cooperative with the photographer, though. Only a few came out to play!

nice! I do love me a good FOWLR thinking about setting one up but I have 2 builds going. I better focus on them...haha but i can dream eh?

is that the 210?
Sweet, I'd be excited to see it. It's a 150 which I think is the least common of the 6ft long tanks. 125, 180, and 210 are more popular.

ah yes the 150 I have one years ago but mine was a 5 footer. I do like 6' tanks

Love fowlrs!! Looks great. What else do you plan to add?
Thanks! I currently have a scopas tang and blue throat trigger in QT. I think I want to get a tusk also. Haven't really thought beyond that. Maybe I'll stop there. We'll see how it goes
