mrs would kill me if her living room looked like that. it was discussed when we bought the house.
I went from a 110 high with stand and canopy in her living room to a 150 high in wall with fish room in the finished basement. "yes dear" never felt so good. :cool:
When I do my 220 build in my garage I’m cutting hole in formal living room wall and pushing it into the room 2 inches then going around it with old thick boat rope
Can’t believe she said ok

So this is what it looks like when you ignore your tank for 2 weeks and have a huge GHA outbreak, wound up taking 89% of rocks out and scrubbing them clean ,, ticked off the corals but they’ll get over it,, hard part is cleaning up my wife’s living room before she kills me,, lol,, @fishguy242
Paulie you should never take pictures of your own crime scene...LOL

Ok so I bailed out on building the 220 tank,, maybe I’m just scared of the size or just not confident in my skills, I be only been in this hobby for a year and I’m very lucky of the results I’ve had in my 65gal setup,, as I don’t test, or add chemicals, not QT tank for anything I just toss stuff in and hope for the best, only use NSW, and tank temp is only
72.5,, nobody thought I’d even get this far
So as for the 220 I have someone coming over tonight and picking it up and I’m just gonna slow my role and gather more experience,, as a tank of that size needs more care than I think I can handle at this time,, I’m in no rush so I’m gonna enjoy what I have now
