    Now with the plumbing done and the sand in we are ready for the rock placement. Once again I enlisted Jeremy's help (I owe him big time) on this for his expertise, because my artistic eye is well lets say, severely lacking at best. We were looking to go with a little more open space then on the previous setup and I think he hit a home run. Now all we had to do was to transfer water from the sump and trash cans and make the last little bit and we are good to go.

    Well after care deliberation and with input from Jeremy at Modern Aquatics I decided in March of this year to shutdown my soft coral tank. This was not an easy decision but I had gotten complacent and I will admit I was bored and needed a new challenge. I would soon learn to be careful what I asked for in the future. The tank had been setup in this configuration for approx. 6 years as a soft coral tank and was populated with several large tangs and angels. Most of the tangs were starting to push the limits of the tank and I was becoming lazy on maintenance and up keep. I decided to go back to my roots and change it to a LPS and SPS dominated tank. I would sell off or give away everything but the live rock and start over This was the last picture of the tank I could find and I think it was about a year old

    Glad you were able to make it out to the meeting. Hopefully we will see you at the next few meetings and at the frag swap coming up in March. If you have any questions or need help with anything, please ask. There are lots of people with many years in the hobby who have gone through a lot of experiences.

    I didn't care for it, I picked up some decent frags. but seemed a little unorganized, and the venue spaced seemed a little misused or just plan to small for the crowd. I know its a newish venture so I don't want to sound to harsh, hopefully as they get more shows under their belt it can keep improving.

    With the fish and coral gone, I moved the live rock to the sump to keep it alive using a bypass built into the system. Now the real fun begins, removing all the sand and cleaning the tank up. I would also begin the process of bleaching the sand and cleaning it so I can re--use it to help keep the costs down. This process would take longer than I thought but I felt good about doing it. I was somewhat surprised that after 9 years there was no trace of hydrogen sulfide smell in the sand, the plenum system really works in my opinion.

    The plan was to move some of the coral to my work tank and get rid of the rest. We would then catch the fish and get them to someone with a large tank. In the end the 6 large tangs and rabbit fish were to be moved to a 2000 gallon plus system in Fishers maintained by Glenn of Aquarium Service and Design. The smaller tangs and assorted angels were moved to another tank maintained by Glenn. Without Glenn's and Jeremy's help this part of the project could not have been done. For reference the big dussumieri tang is about 14 inches long and 9 inches tall

    Bill Your tank and setup was definitely one of my favorites as well. I look forward to seeing the next generation.

    Last time I saw the tank was at the Christmas meeting a couple years ago. Definitely one of my favorites. Excited to see its new direction
