    That's the beauty of this hobby Jason....choices, choices, choices. Maybe I just like it because I live vicariously through his larger tank. They get a little too big for my 120...lol.

    Jason, what are you look at price wise?
    MRC here in Atlanta might be in the ballpark. If not new, they may also know about something used as well.

    Congrats on the go ahead from the wifey! Sounds like it will be an awesome system. I'd love to do a 10'x30"x24-28" in the future.

    It her idea... but she understands the dollar side of it as well. so that is a limiting factor right now. We have both interviewed recently for positions that potentially could triple our total household income.. possibly even greater. If we get these it is most likely a go in the next year or so.. She Really wants a puffer... :) and I won't have one in my reef.

    So cool. I tried to pitch the idea of an in wall tank to my wife once. Once. The conversation went something like this;
    "What would you think about an in wall tank by the front entrance that spans each corner of the guest bedroom?"

    "Sounds awesome! What's an in wall tank?"

    "It's a tank that is viewable from the living room but the tank is actually in the guest bedroom."

    "What? How is that possible?"

    "Well, I would cut the wall along here where it separates the bedroom from the living room..."

    "Nope. Not in my lifetime."

    Come on by — why is everyone so obsessed with the demolishing part! :D. I went to school for one year at IPFW in Fort Wayne, then moved back to Indy for IU Kelley School of Business and eventually Butler for grad school.

    Well, I see new they’re $2,000 to $4,000 and I’d like to spend that for all the materials or so in total... LOL she’s cheap (I am too but she makes me look like a spendthrift). I see several 8 foot tanks for cheap with tons of equipment and things I could sell (like $500 or less in a few cases). I wouldn’t be opposed to that size, either!

    Most certainly, as long as you don’t give my fish marina ich! :D
