Congrats on the new job, but I'm sad to see this tank go. I pretty much read through this entire thread when I started lurking here and learned quite a bit from it - I'm looking forward to seeing your next project

Thanks paratiddies! I tried to make my thread as comprehensive as possible so that I could go back and track progress. I'm glad you could learn from it too.

Id have to say, the best LFS in the entire city of Chicago, is Aquatic World, on 2029 W Belmont. Great place, with lots of beautiful livestock, but a little pricey. Where in Chicago are you moving?

LOL! I went past that place when I was in town for a wedding last week. It did look nice. Thanks for the heads-up. We'll be moving to Evanston to start. I'll be working at Northwestern.

That's practically next door! At least from a shipping standpoint. We'll have to set up a trade sometime. ;) We'll be starting out in Evanston. Since we don't have a car, I want to be within walking/biking distance of campus. Where did you go to school?

Thanks Drift Monkey! I can't wait to start over again.

Thanks SpainKenya! Sounds like a plan. Maybe we can trade corals sometime. I've been reading about the giant frag swaps that have been happening in the Chicago area recently. I can't wait to see them.

No worries for now. No car yet. Gonna live close to work and walk or bike. I'll need one soon though. I don't think I'll be able to take the El to all the LFS's.

Hey Mr Microscope! I am a Chicagoland reefer here. You should try Midwest Coral Farms in Deerfield. It is a new place and really a nice facility.

I love finding new places! Let me know if you need any help settling in.

Thanks Anthony! Poidog took me there a few months ago. By far the best place I've seen yet! Thanks for the suggestion. I look forward to going back.
