    You've probably heard me whine about this one... my aquarium was behind me while I sat at the computer. I hated it. I never noticed it really. FINALLY I moved the thing this weekend next to the arm of my couch in the leaving room. It's THE BEST! I can see it easily.. and check the sump without getting off the couch!

    I also changed out my sand to some better stuff and got rid of a bunch of in and out of my tank. It looks sooo much better. 8)

    So now I've got tanks at both ends of my couch (the other is my turtle tank). I feel like Dr. No from James Bond. ;D :tongue4:


    Have you been putting off moving your aquarium?

    No for me. Right now we only have a 20gal setup in the kitchen. Even if i wanted to move it we dont have the space in any other room so... As soon as we move im getting my 120gal out of storage (its in my parents basement... thanks mom) and setting it up.

    well i choose no because it is in my room and very viewable...the only thing i would do is move it away from the wall so i can see the right side

    What an ugle job Matt. I hate moving aquariums but I voted yes because it has to be done. Great time for improvments and like you did sand and other changes.

    AAAK! No, I finally got the 300 up and running right where I want it. Plus I'd have to recarpet, fix the holes in the floor and run new plumbing down to the basement. The 72 is in a happy place next to the couch in the den, so it is good although the salt creep from the slow leak has got me thinking about a replacement. I will use the same spot. I need to double check, but I might be able to squeeze a 125 in the same spot. I know I'm good for a 90. I might even consider plumbing it into the same sump as the 300. Finally the 210 in the office is on the only wall that isn't occupied.
