    Yup. And actually it looks like we may be moving within the next two weeks. So either I'm going to see about a service that will move the tank and set it up or see if they will keep our fish until we move. I'd hate to bring them home and then 1-2 weeks later have to put them through a move.

    I would wait until after the move so you wouldn't put them through the stress of moving.

    Welcome to R2R and Nashville. I'm in Clarksville... definitely look into MTRC. Good group of people and monthly meetings are well attended. They are usually hosted at one of the local fish stores in the area.

    Well definitely look into that after this move (hopefully, fingers crossed it all goes through) We are definitely going to make the big show. Trying to hold off buying any supplemental lights until then to see if we find a good deal. I really want to add a little more lighting to our tank.

    Is it your intention to go reef?

    Yup. Either with this tank or do another setup.

    Once you move you should consider a sump.

    One of many wise words that were spoke to me when I started in this hobby several years ago: "Nothing in this hobby happens fast" The more patience you have will always be more beneficial in the long run. I enjoy SPS the most which to me stands for "Slow Persistent Success" If I can ever help shoot me a PM.
