One RK takes care of everthing in the tank and the other controls things in my sump...

 

Had the C02 been on during the time I took the picture, you would've seen a clear drop in PH on the unit on the wall; 6.4 ph...

 

Because of both reefkeepers, I have the ability to shut off anything independantly of each other....

 

Hope that answers the basics...

How is the tank doing? Any new additions? A new FTS would be rad.

Attention all reefers,

 

The day has come to sell my 72 gallon Oceanic reef ready bowfront. I'm selling just the glass tank with mega flow kit; $100 dollars...

 

The tank is in excellent condition as I have taken great care of it...

so why the step up to the 90 just to gain a few inches in height?

seriously! i've got one of those sitting in my store and it looks like it would be a BI+CH to aquascape. you couldn't pay me to set one up. for the cost of the tank plus what you'd get for the 72+stand+canopy, you could get a 120 and stand and use the same lighting and filtration you've got plus a cheap diy sump and another pump.

That does sound so tempting but I will tell you why the 90 gallon bowfront:

 

1. The bowfront design is very unique to any other tank I have seen, it's appearance makes any room shout with elegance.

 

2. There is no hassle in just pulling off the 72 gallon and placing the 90 in the same stand and canopy.

 

3. The 90 has a much more elegant look than the 72, the extra inches make a huge difference in pure beauty.

 

4. I will be able to re-aquascape the rock to create a newer look I've been wanting for some time; a sand base all around the reef.

 

5. I will be able to remove some tangs that have Lateral line disease and restock a healthier group.

 

6. I will be able to catch the evil crab that's at the bottom of my tank.

 

7. I don't have the room width wide for the 120 gallon tank in my current spot, moving the furniture all around would not work.

 

8. Re-plumbing all my equipment is not on my agenda; have you seen what's in my cabinet?

 

9. I've always wanted the 90 gallon, just they never had it the day I purchased the 72.

 

10. And the number one reason, I cannot go beyond the 90, I'm married and the wife said I will not justify more spending on lights or cabinets on canopys.

You could've just said reason 10 and we all would've understood. The other 9 are good reasons too. Bowfronts are awesome, glad to see you're keeping it in the family.

Thanks to all that inquired on my legendary tank; it's been sold to a reefer in San Francisco...

 

I ordered my 90 gallon bowfront today from Aquarium Concepts in Dublin, I had some gift certificates from them so it paid for itself...

 

I go to pick it up Friday after work; and then I do the move Saturday, leaving Sunday a farewell to my 72 gallon friend...
