Thank You So Much... Complete Resto... Took me 4 yrs and countless man hrs... Now I want to sell it to get it out of the garage so I can bring in MORE REEFIN STUFF.... I am a sick man...
Hmmmm thats a tough one. Maybe if you can, you could just add on a room. Tell the wife an extra room adds to the property value. Keep the car and have a dedicated fish/frag room!

Well that is LOTS of fish stuff if you sold it. I couldn't ever sell mine, my father and I put some time in working on it together, and now the wife said I have to keep it.
Whatever you do, do what makes you happy. Just don't forget to take one more late night cruise, or one last trip to the drive-in theater before you say goodbye.

Question is Which is worse.. Just a little debate the wife and I are in right now. I was doing my Saturday tank Maintenance walked by her with the Skimmer Cup in my hand and by her reaction you would have that I was carrying a Dead Body. So I replied better then cleaning the litter box.. That could Gag A Maggot... Well I don't need to tell ya what happen next... Battle ON!!! so if you could vote I would appreciate it. I win I show her the pole.. She wins.. I will delete this faster then a speeding bullet and leave no Trace behind;)
A cat box is less disgusting to clean but more disgusting to have in the house.

The tank you won...let's get some specs. I thought about something immediately when I saw it. Y'all are into Americana...what about a Coca-Cola stand?

Really nice setup Casa. And the shop with the mixing station and quarantine setup, very nice.

Sorry to see about the recent battle with ich. Hopefully things are progressing nice now for you.

Can you elaborate a little on the UV, did you set it up before or after having to quarantine your fish? That is a unique way you got it in that cabinet.

CasaReefer,

Dang nice setup, tank and Cuda. You had me at Mopar but your tank setup piqued my interest. I recently purchased an XL525. I'm still accumulating components and working out some placement issues. I don't have access to my garage or laundry room next to the tank so I have to build cabinets to house my storage tanks (RODI & SW).

I will head your warning regarding the QT. That's another component that needs to fit in the cabinets I building. Trying to fit 20lbs in a 5lb bag.
