Is your clown hosting anything in your tank?

so today, i decide to re-arrange my whole tank...looks kinda the same, but im sure my corals are happy! in the proces i noticed my fiji purple had blown out.... :rant: so guess its time for a new set of bulbs.

i have 10k MH in now, and my growth on my sps is nutz! so i think i may leave them till xmas, before i swap them out. as for the t-5's im thinkin of going this route:

ati blue +
ati purple +

(future 2x175w 20k reeflux)

ati blue plus
ati true actinic

ok, there comes a time in all of our reefing lives when we get bored of our setups. And for the most of us we usually go to a larger tank. This is not the case in my position.

Since funds for the hobby are pretty low, and the house i live in doesnt really allow for a larger tank. plus i wanna cut down on running costs and possibly create a tank with all the supplies i have always wanted.

so what im asking is, should i sell my 40 breeder? sell off all the supplies, livestockk and all? and strt from new?

i bought myself a 25gallon cube as a christmas present, and didnt realize how much it would just sit on the floor and collect dust.....lol

i need some encouragment! questions, suggestions all appreciated!!

thanks all!!!

Set up the second tank. If funds are low, take out a second mortgage on the house. There's always room for another tank :D

I say keep it.If your bored sell your livestock and do something new.Perhaps a tank specific species fish and or coral,rearrange the scape or what not.To me the 40brdr is a nice size,but a cube would be something different :lol: .Are you really going to be happy with a 25 gallon after the 40??If you can live with that, then go for it, if the cost of maintaining the 40 is to much.
The ultimate decision is yours.
Good luck
