    I've been out of the hobby for a few years now after taking down my 300dd/500 gal system in 2013. I had a previous build thread on that other site.

    I got the itch to get back into the hobby and finally decided to pull the trigger again. I currently don't have a spot for a fish room so I wanted a tank that would give me space to have fun but not too big to maintain without a fish room. After seeing a few of the red sea reefers I decided to go with the 750xxl in white.

    Tank got delivered on Monday and more items are on the way!

    Tank arrived yesterday 4.30.18

    Welcome back!

    *Edit: I see you are in Melbourne, may I suggest checking out Psychodelic Relics on Eau Gallie Blvd, just West of US1. They are a small aquaculture that literally just got a store front they are in the process of renovating. Cool guys, fair prices, and awesome corals! They have rock and some fish as well. Tell 'em Bruce sent'chya!

    Based on the tank and the car this is going to be an awesome build, I can tell. Along for the ride.
