    I spent last night and read about euroquatic e5. It's very new not many people really using it yet. I'm not much of blazing the trail person. I will keep my eye on it. It would be nice not to have to change tub for 5-8yrs with 3x the price. May be my next bulb changing i will loo at it again.

    After 2 weeks everything seem good. The feather worm from the seeded rocks and mat doing good. Look like time for me to migrate the tank. Tomorrow I'm going to move sump first and going to connect the rest of plumbing. Sunday i will move the live stocks.

    I ended up didn't move the sump on Friday. Find on too much work involve. And work call me to come in to work so i didnt have time for it.
    I got half friday off, so i decided to move the live stock.
    First go all the coral in 5 tube, then put the fish in those tube. Then move the rock.

    I didnt not reuse any water or sand.
    After 6hrs of moving, here is what it got.

    Today i was planning to hook up the sump, but found out the a leak in my changing station pump. My carpet got about 20gal on it. Lucky it was a basement. I decided to rent a carpet cleaner and clean my carpet while im at it.
    Boy, cleaning carpet is a lot of work. Especially have to suck out 20gal of water also.
    Anyway that pretty much all i do. Also sit back and enjoy the tank a little bit. Remind me while i like this hobby.

    Looks great, and I really like the BGM chalice. Nice sized colony.
