What happens when a reef guy gets the opportunity to take a run down 120 gallon FOWLR off someone’s hands? Depending on who you ask, the answer ranges from “another hole in the basement we pour money into” to a challenging opportunity to build a great reef on the remains of a previously rather ugly and poorly maintained effort at a marine aquarium.

My goal for this thread is going to be seeking a lot of diverse and seasoned advice. I consider myself to know just enough to be dangerous. I am hoping the rest of you will help steer me around the catastrophes.

The next few posts will be to detail the raw materials I have to work with, my initial thinking, and hopefully some friendly R2R reality checks. Thanks in advance to everyone who will hopefully contribute.
