    The new guy

    Hi guys! I am new to the hobby. I started with a IM 10 gallon, had it on my counter top in my kitchen with 2 clowns and a couple pieces of coral. I got hooked instantly and wanted more fish. Well after doing some reading everyone says when upgrading get the biggest you can ( I now know what they meant as I want bigger already and its only been a few months) I knew I wanted some tangs so I went with a 125gal, knowing what I know now I should of just went with the 160gal. I assume it never stops tho, if I had got the 160 I would of wanted a 200gal.

    New apex Classic

    I have a new in box apex classic for sale. I'm was going to use it for a second tank but decided not to set up another one so I dont need this anymore. Looks like they are $550 on BRS so I think $475 shipped sounds fair.

  5. Im not sure this is the right area but anyway, Maybe some of the more experience people in this hobby can answer this for me. Is it better to sell your aquarium as a complete setup or sell the tank and stand as one and all accessories separate?

    Getting out, Have a question

    I lost my flame fin tang and he had no spots on him at all. He was fine and laying dead this morning. I really dont know what the hell is going on. Its that kinda thing that really makes me think I'm not good at this hobby.

    Getting out, Have a question

    It's a sweet setup for sure, I just lost all interest :(, it happens. So here's the long story short why I'm selling this. So I start off with a 10 gallon IM all in one, I love the couple clowns and shrimp and few pieces of coral. Well thats fully stocked right, I want bigger and I want to have tangs. So everyone tells me go with the biggest you can afford, so I do. I think I'm close to 10g's at this point (with all the little things you dont even think about at the time). So everything is going great, I have a couple tangs, wrasse, clowns etc. Well the one tang breaks out in ich (I did QT him and I have multi QT tanks in my basement also) the tang dies and my whole tank is infested now. I didnt lose everything, my clowns and wrasse were ok. So I guess I should of pulled the clowns and wrasse out of the tank and left it fallow for 2 month or whatever but I didnt. So about a month goes by and I start replacing the tangs, not all at once of course. Everything is fine and BAM ICH again, not only ich but my powder brown had this white looking fuzzy stuff all over him and he didnt make it. So I'm just done with tangs lol! I want my 10 or 20 gallon back with a couple clowns and call it good.

    Yea everyone on other forums say I will get more if I sell the stuff separate instead of a complete system.

    This is the build thread of it, nothing has changed expect for its a for months older but of course I would clean it all. I do still have about 13-14 fish left in the tank so it isn't broken down yet. if someone really wanted it as a turn key they could have the fish if they wanted if not Im sure Moby Dick would take them.

    Hey Poolman, I see you're in Waterford, I live in Holly not that far from you. Maybe you know someone that might be looking at getting into the hobby that's local. Its the Cadlight 125g tank with stand. Then i went with trigger systems sump.

    Cadlight 125 build

    I had to use adapters from BRS so I could use PVC from home depot. I would love to go with a nice overflow like you did Im just to scared to drill 1/2 glass. I have drilled the cheaper aqueon tanks from petco but they are cheap ya know.

    Cadlight 125 build

    Thank you! I love the dimensions of the cadlight I just hate the plumbing they use. I hope I never have to replace the bulkheads as they are not a US size.

    Cadlight 125 build

    I cant upload anymore I have reach the size limit I guess.
  18. What happened to your tank in the end? Any updates?
  19. OK cool! I have a cadlight 125 and I hate the funky bulkhead sizes. I was thinking about doing what you did but I wasnt sure how to deal with the holes that were there.
  20. I'm not sure anyone is still around but I was wondering how you plugged up the holes that were already drilled in the tank?
