Ok, I know what a clean up crew is, and is for. I just didn't know what the abbreviation is.

I believe the Diatom hit its peak last night... it is starting to recede now...

Still have to get a new gH/kH test.

Oh, and I am going back and forth with the Hubby between a 90g on craigslist (which I would rather have) or converting our 55g.

I found a 20g tall tank on craigslist that someone made into a sump and has a wall built in... for $25. Going to pick that up tonight. (I can use it on either tank)

Very good. I would go with the 90. Is it reef-ready?

Yeah, it is reef ready, but the guy won't come down on his price any. $375 and all it comes with is the stand, some chemicals, and a broken protein skimmer.

I found a 65g that would actually fit really well in our living room and I could move the loveseat back over a foot (to see the tv better lol) The guy wants $150 for it, it has hood/light, and an enclosed stand. We have a wire stand on our 55g so we would have to build a new stand for it anyways. Good hard oak to make it would be abt $100+.

I would rather have the 90g but for budget we may have to go with the 65g.
So no angels I guess! But have to go with what the $$ dictates, KWIM??

The 65g is not reef ready but I have been looking at DIY overflows, and sumps... hubby and I are handy, we can do it! :)

Check out the Dwarf Angels. They could definitely fit in a 65 gallon.
