    Hey Craigar,

    Where is that tank in your house? On a foundation/concrete slab? In the basement? Just curious what you're doing with the weight. I'd eventually love to do something in the 300 range but would likely need to go in the basement. The 150XH on the main level is at the limit of my comfort level.

    Cool, thanks! Any info on flooring reinforcement, structural configuration, or structural engineering? I want a big tank in my basement/theater but I'm a bit concerned about the weight...

    If it's on the slab no reinforcement needed.

    Been quite a while since I've been on. Tank is in recovery mode right now. We went on vacation pretty much all of Nov and my skimmer pump went out. I lost 90 percent of my sps. I took four 5 gallon buckets of sps skeletons out. Done 900 gallons of water changes since Dec 1st[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]


    If o have given you corals and still have them I would love to get some frags back.

    Hey Craigar,

    I have a ginormous (8") poscillopora, (please take the whole thing) and a big green slimer in great need of a haircut you're welcome to. Also have some larger acro stuff that could take a trim. Stylophora, etc. On the LPS front, I could certainly do away with a big toxic candycane or give the hammer and torch a trim. Might even chop off some of my red planet if you'd like.

    Let me know --

    Adam
