I was thinking this morning, got the 180 on order, and this thread, although covers a lot in a short period of time, the first 75 pages won't really be relevant to the tank I have at the time.

What are thought on retiring this thread and starting a new one covering the transition from 120 to 180 and beyond?

If I knew how to post a poll, I would.

I keep adding to fishys fraggy Wonderland. I like seeing the transitions and where the tanks began... but thats just me. I feel like there is relevancy to everything in my thread for someone. From the humble beginning to the current state of affairs.

Pretty proud of my tank. Been 10 days since a WC. Lowest numbers I've ever seen, by like 59...

Sorry @sp1187 I've lost my Kool-Aid card membership. Sorta bummed. Y'all make sure they serve beer at a meet up spot.

So I could update the badge to start on page whatever which would be kind of the start of the move? I would just copy the URL for that page into it no?

You can start it on a specific post in the thread if you want to. You would just copy the URL from the share icon at the top of that post and paste it in for your badge

I had the previous worthless low range. Used twice, given the whole filter out the zinc part...i hated it. I'm a glass guy.

Bought this guy on Amazon just delivered today.
