I haven't been on for a while, but I just wanted to drop a line! My husband and I are trying to patch things up and he decided he really wants to have a giant fish tank after we went to lfs. We settled on a 100 gallon (not giant, but about the biggest we can afford right now. We have it on layaway: 100 gallon glass tank, stand, glass tops and lights for $400. In my opinion it's a steal cause it's brand new! We are gonna go saltwater, but haven't yet decided on whether to go reef or FOWLR.... We plan on building to the set up very, very slowly. Anyway, just had to brag about my deal!

nice, is the tank drilled? if it is reef ready i suggest a refugium. as far as FOWLR or REEF, this depends on what you like. i myself am on a reef right now and once i finally get the 110 up and going along with lights for it my reef is going to be moved from my 90 to the 110 and teh 110 is going to be a FO tank so i can have avolitan lion and a porcupine puffer lol! . IMHO i would get one of each, 1 reef and 1 FO, one thing you need to keep in mind with a reef it make sure to have aprotein skimmer and good lighting (T5HO's)

Thanks guys! I look forward to picking up our new tank, but am impatient on the wait... ... ... is it time yet? JK, LOL! coke I kinda want to go reef, but my husband is still on the fence. It's not drilled so we'll have to buy some overflow boxes, but it's worth it! They had a used 180 gallon oceanic bowfront with everything included (T5 lighting, refugium, filtration, etc.) for $1,600, but that's a little steep for right now... But it looked nice, although if I did buy it I would take out the undergravel filter and do something different. One can dream.....

considering what was included the 1600.00 tank woul dhave been the better deal and would be great for either a FOWLR or a REEF
