    Why are you selling most of your corals?

    All coral and fish that I have left for sale is for pick up only! The rock is cycling in a massive Brute garage can with a powerhead.
    I mainly have most of the coral already gone, I would really like to sell the live rock .. I can ship that anywhere is the US!
    i HAVE ABOUT 30 POUNDS OF Old School Tonga Branch that was banned for export in the mid 2000's and I have around 50 lbs of Ultra Premium Fiji!
    Big pcs / Show pcs / Small pcs / etc etc

    This was the last recent Photo of the Tank before I started slowing selling everything off so I can start build my new SCA 150. All my Tangs out grew this 120 so I had to give them a much bigger home if you know what i mean! I bought them when there were all Juveniles.

    @curt creelman - This is one mature tank skip boy wonder, let me tell ya! It's been up and running since 1994! I had a really good run with this tank and learned a ton over the last decided on how to keep these amazing SPS / LPS Corals..

    Ones, I get my NEW sump from @Synergy, I will be buying 1st is the new CoralVue Klir filter system so i never have to change another filter sock again. It will be totally automated just like how you see in the picture below with the Motor. The Klir filter will hold up to about 20 up 30 days worth until you have to change out the filter roll that only coast $10.00.. The Klir will be priced around the $300.00 range which will go right into your filter sock holes. Klir will have them available for 4'' & 7'' sock holes for your sumps. I will be just getting 1 Klir 4'' model for my Synergy SS-44.

    As mentioned in my very first post, I will be starting my SCA 150 thread here in the few months. I just want to get my sump and my ATO container 1st! I know with the Blk & Red Mercury color sumps are on back order and normally take 4-5 weeks to build and the matching 10 gallon Synergy ATO storage container but it will be well worth it (TRSUT ME) If you ever had a pleasure of seeing one you will understand. Ones I get the SS-44'' sump, I can start hard plumbing my Synergy 20" external overflow box that will run 3 of my 1.5inch drains and for the returns I will be going with 1'' and for my returns they will be 1 '' with Cepex ball valves and 2 Wye Check Valves:

    Matt puts so much work and love into his tank. I go over to his house every weekend and he is trying to get a brand new 150 up and running. Keep his old tank happy and healthy. And install a 6 stage RODI with a second membrane upgrade (its more complicated than the Space Station) plumb his new tank from scratch...have an new sump custom built. oh and get all of the water supply tubes run thru his house and out to his garage where his salt water mixing station is. I wonder if the clam and the other "little guys: in the tank appreciate what he is doing. Sometimes, I think they are ALIENS and they are smarter than us. After all....WE are the ones doing THEIR BIDDING :)

    Can't believe my boy was almost EATEN BY A SHARK ! Ok, well, that was kind like a fish story, but he was bitten but the shark showed mercy. So Please, no catching sharks ok. We all just watched shark week and we need all the sharks we can get to keep the system healthy and vibrant.

    Here are some pictures of my SPS Corals & LPS that i currently have in my current 120 deep. Instead of selling or giving away this coral that I have been growing for the last year on some of these frags, i am going to go out and buy decent QT tank which would be perfecto for holding all of my corals and inverts until my new 150 cycles.
