Well, after kicking around drilling tanks and working with what I had.....I bought a 80 gallon with a sump and stand. LOL. 32" x 24" x 24"....so I have a few questions -

I have a radion XR15, should I pickup another one? Or light suggestions?

Also, can anyone lie to my wife for me?

I feel your pain, I bought a used 120 gallon aquarium. It is stuck in the back of my Wife’s Minivan. Can’t find anyone to help move it into the house and down to the basement. It’s even on a custom pallet so it can be slid down the steps.

Tell her the negative news first then follow up with some sort of good news! It might lessen the blow but honestly women pick that up right away so shes gonna be mad but hopefully not as mad lol! And try and slide it in during a good convo! Dont bring it up awkwardly lol! Best i can i do lol! Good luck and enjoy!!! ;)

( @LRT is suggesting the old tried-and-true, "Oh, by the way, Dear..." ) :)
Wish one of the old pros would have taught me this trick a long time ago. It can only get better if its all bad hahaha.

Can't help with your wife. I've got my own"problems" to deal with. I think the radion you have would be plenty for that tank. Instead of another light add a reefbrite kit onto it. I'm running 2 this way over a reefer 625 growing sps no problem.

Yeah I've been kicking this around. I have some time. I'm in no real RUSH to get this tank together so I think I'm gonna take a month or two and get everything together and go slow this time. ACTUALLY MAKE A PLAN. Which is not my strong suit. As you can tell from this thread.
