For 5 or 6 years my wife has wanted me to remodel our garage into living space. I wasn’t at all interested in making the investment until 2 years ago she tried a new tack and said “You know, if we remodeled the garage, you could put a wine cellar out there”(the bait was dangled) . This got me a little bit interested in the project :thinking2but not enough to get started. After another 12 months of inaction on my part, she pulled out the big guns and said, “If we remodeled the garage, we’d have room to put a fish tank out there” (and thus the hook was set). Previously, we'd each had 70 gal reefs with soft corals and some inverts. After getting married we combined our tanks into a nice 120 which was set up for 4 years. When we moved back to Virginia, our new house didn’t have a good spot for the tank and so our tank spent 8 years sitting empty in the garage .
