    Been in the hobby almost 20 yrs. Had to sell off my 180, my 320, my 65, my two each 90, and my 150 g sump about three years ago for work that required me to travel. Now retired and decided on a 500g build. We really really love it. I work on it continuously in my retirement.

    Here I am by my 320



    By my 180



    My 180 was my biggest success and I hope I can out do it with my new 500g with ALL your help

    My Four previous setups moved

    We moved our tanks to the basement from the home office area where we started with the 180 g and setup in the basement the 180g top left, the 320 top right and two 90g on the bottom. BIG Mistake as we did not enjoy going to the basement to view our precious reef and did not like taking our guests downstairs to view them either...



    This is past history and now I will refocus on the new 500g tank that has been running since late Jan 2014... or thereabouts

    OH WOW...beautiful!

    Thats about where I am. I have a 54 corner, 75, 90 and 240 set up right now. i'll never have room for a 500 gal system though.

    Believe me so much less headaches with one large setup. I guess I still have Three tanks in this setup plus a relatively small sump
    Mainly we have to enjoy the fruits of our Hard labor !!! Thanks Ipisces

    I was speaking of the number of tanks, not the quantity of water when I said thats about where I am.

    glad to have you back in the hobby and on RF. would love to see the behind the scene workings of the new tank too.

    I understood that U were talking about the numbers of tanks and I reflected that it is nice that I had one tank then I realized I actually still have three tanks plus a sump tank but they are all in one place on same water system... Anyhow we love our new system.... I did start a thread on RF for my "behind the scenes" of my new build here is the reference " http://www.reeffrontiers.com/threads...631#post721631 " I appreciate your interest and would love to know where I can see pictures of your tanks ... thanks
