I’m sorry that needs need happen moving sucks...moving when you have a reef tank super mega sucks!
Thank you, It does but I spent the majority of my life either as a dependent of a Marine or as a Marine. I’m used to it. Now moving the tank will be interesting.

O! I need to know MORE about those casters! I just posted they would be the ONLY thing missing from having the tanks be PERFECT! Please do tell!!

There is a smaller size that is rated at 600# per caster but it is like $2.00 less. 1100# each may be overkill but I figure this is one area that you can't overengineer. I would rather design it to hold the weight of a Sherman tank and have it roll like butter. We are not getting any younger, my friends.

Spent over $15,000 in big purchases for my new 365G Reef Aquarium in 2020 - most purchases were made on Black Friday. Thank you BRS and MD. Only three big items left to buy to complete the build-out:
1. RED DRAGON 3 SPEEDY PUMP 100 WATT (3100 GPH) - ROYAL EXCLUSIV which will be used as my feeder circulation pump to Carbon Reactor, Chiller and UV Light
2. SMART HIGH OUTPUT UV 80 WATT - PENTAIR AQUATICS
3. 400 lbs of Rock - still deciding between live rock or dry rock. Been debating this decision for weeks.

I didn’t think I would get one but with the store credit I had and being a gear and control junky... I got the Neptune Apex Dissolved Oxygen Probe.

I love this hobby and wanted one. I am also studying water parameters, reading all I can, and this is just a fun way to make observations a bit more clear.

Setting up my next setup after 3+ Years without one. It’s taken me this long because 1) I got married, 2) I bought a new house, 3) had to sell the old house, 4) my new tank has been in the shed for over a year because of COVID. I’m more than ready to get going again.
Congrats, congrats and CONGRATS!

As reef hobbyists part of the fun of aquariums is the equipment and cool gadgets! We all have wish lists and items we want to purchase but sometimes we have to wait and save or for some other reason just wait. With that in mind let's talk about what that BIG purchase for 2021 will be!

1. What BIG equipment purchase will you have in 2021?

2. Why did you wait until this year to make the purchase?

Been without a tank for over a year. Going to down size and go with red sea max E-260 just have to convince wife. Got rid of 280 gallon display system and everything else. So it will be like starting over from scratch.
Well I decided to go with reefer 300xl just waiting for it to be in stock have everything else ready
