Over the weekend I made the leap from my 29 gallon to a 55 gallon. I got a deal that I couldn't pass up for all completely brand new equipment so I had to take it. Right now in the pics all that is in the tank is what was in my 29. I am ordering 50lbs of base rock probably this weekend to arrive late next week and a huge pack of snails too. I scrubbed every inch of my LR with dirty tank water to get off as much of my HA problem as possible before I transferred it into my new tank.

We started with this....

I got my snail crew yesterday too. Many more snails that what I ordered arrived. For the most part they are out & about checking the place out so I don't think that many of them died in transit. There are a few blue legged hermits mixed in there too.

I'll think twice on the crushed coral when / if it gives me trouble. Right now there is about 2" of aragonite on top of it.

Thanks though.

Who ever said a box of rocks is dumb? LOL ... the rocks arrived on Thursday and today I got them in the tank. OMG! I love it. I look at it and don't think I want to rearrange anything which is odd for me. I rearrange stuff all the time :wink:

Anyway....on with the pics!

LOL pretty soon you'll find yourself stopping by LFS that aren't on the way home.
then you'll start adding new fish/corals while no one is around and hoping they don't notice the new additions "oh that old fish he came out of the live rock"

I got the 50# for $85 (including shipping) package. You can tell him if you want a certain size pieces too. I told him to send me medium sized stuff to fill in my 55 gallon with and I love what he sent.

thanks! I'm debating between that and the brs eco-saver/pukani at the moment. I'm going from 29 to either a 58 (almost in hand) or a 65 (tank only deal on CL, would have to ditch 58)... not entirely sure yet. Either way... I'm gonna need another 50 pounds of rock.

Here's where I openly admit I've been wrong about SPS in the past, and now I must have all the tasty acros under the sun. Build thread forthcoming once I have the 58 in hand.

Hey we all change our minds as we go! That's why anyone starting a FOWLR tank, I advise ahead of time that they should build toward corals because they ARE going to want them once they get started!
