Assuming all goes according to plan, I'll be picking up the tank on Saturday. It's not drilled, so while I've got the jeep, I'm hoping to schedule an appointment with the LFS to get it drilled Saturday as well.

omgomgomg

Planned Equipment:
300w Heater (comes with the tank)
Sedra KPS-5000
6x54w T5HO (probably Nova Extreme)
K2
K1
K-nano
Skimmer (type TDB)
Fluval 305 canister filter (not sure what I'll do with it, if anything)
20L sump (assuming it fits in the stand)

Biological Filtration:
15 or so lbs of live rock (from the 20L)
50 lbs of dry rock (John's stuff)
15 or so lbs of live rock in the sump (from the 20L's sump)
Dry sand

Planned livestock:
Kole tang
Some kind of blenny
A pair of clowns
A wrasse or two (maybe a Hoeven's Wrasse)
A pair or trio of chalk bass
A Mandarin, much further down the road.

Actual Stocking:

Fish:
Engineer Goby

Corals:
Blastomussa

Gorgonia:
Pseudopterogorgia bipinnata

Macros:
Ulva
Flame Algae
Red Gracilaria
Halimeda Monile (?)

:lol:

The Reef Octopus has done well for me thus far. It's rated for the NW-110 is rated for 100g, so I might have to go a step above what I've got in the 29g. That, or I'll see what's for sale in the local club. They've always got good used stuff.

Awesome! I really like the looks of the Fairy Wrasse. From the description on LA, it sounds like I might be able to have a pair of them? :o

What kinds of corals are you thinking of? If it has much SPS you will need more flow....I have 2 powerheads and two K4's and it's returned by a Blueline 1100GPH.....

I'm going to have a mix of everything, with SPS down the line. Up front, I might have one cap, and I'd put it right in front of one of the Koralias. The Koralias are actually just a temporary part of the tank. I eventually want to get an MP20, sometime late this summer or early in the fall. I might even spring for a MP40 if I've got the dough then.

In a 75g tank you might be able to.
There's a wide variety of really nice ones.

I'll do that! The toughest thing for me is always finding cool fish that go well together. Thankfully I found out about the chalk bass before I got more than one of them. I'm still tempted to get a group of chalk bass in the 75 though. :happy:

Got any pictures of what you've got in mind? My aquascaping plans at this point are wide open!

Thanks to Richie, Weetie, and everyone else who has chimed in on the issue so far, I've put some further thought into my stocking. Here's the updated plan. Let me know what you think!

Planned livestock:
Kole Yellow Eye Tang or Blue Tang
ORA Striped Blenny Pair (assuming diver's den still has them)
A pair of clownfish
A pair of Longfin Fairy Wrasses
And a Mandarin further down the road

That's a grand total of 8 fish. How's that list sound?

:happy:

I'm sure I could give her some input. With school and everything, she doesn't get to spend much time at my place though.


Although, on that front, we were talking last night, and somehow the subject of parents came up. She made the comment that she's never introduced any guy she's dated to her parents. Then, a few minutes later, she said her mom had been asking about me, and if I would be up to meeting her mom. I guess things are getting more serious (although still apparently not official?)
