    Time has come for the biggest change that this tank has seen in three years. I have to move it. I just bought a house, will be moving into it in about two months or so. At that time, I will have to make the move. I have yet to really research the proper way to do a tank move. I am also considering an upgrade to something bigger (there is a 120 for sale on craiglist). Thoughts? Guess I better start reading.

    Awesome! That is quite the upgrade from a 55 :) Assuming the dimensions are 72"x24"x30".

    This build will be an in-wall install.

    I am going to be sad since I will be retiring this tank within the next couple months. Just means bigger and better things now that I am upgrading to a 220G.

    It is a dry heat, yeah right !
    220 boy that is big, a lot of space to fill, congrats. Going to have to think of a name for the new tank. I have enjoyed the Gallons of Eye Candy, looking forward to the next built.

    Do you know how you're going to deal with the Blue Cloves?

    Looks really good!

    Have you planned how to move all those corals yet? Would scare the crap out of me.
