I AM kind of sad to hear that you're getting rid of the freshwater setups (especially since you never even showed them!), but if this means more room for your lovely collection of zoas, I'll *TRY* not to cry too much. How many tanks do you HAVE?! You probably have to go count, don't you?!!! You need to get busy with that camera of yours (or have your son do it >.<) once you get this build together and the tanks settled back in their new homes. I admit to being especially curious about the headboard tank. Was that a custom build? Sorry. . . give me the chance, and I'll derail any thread with a barrage of questions!!! Keep up the great work on the stand build! Can't wait to see the next update!

Don't worry too much as I am simply consolidating,so I am not getting rid of any fish, and just changing the layout of my house.For now the bottom tank will still be fresh.I really want to get my tanks with similar needs together so coral tanks in my room and fresh water everywhere else...kinda.Its a work in progress.

As far as number of tanks I don't like to count as I am always scheming for more wich means doing what I am doing in this thread,taking down tanks to put more up.
This number would also be different if it included tanks without water such as terrariums and such.

Heehee - YOU, my friend, bring new definition to the term Multiple Tank Syndrome!

AND I LOVE IT!!!

COUNT THEM!!! COUNT THEM ALLLLLLLL!!!! *insert maniacal laughter here*
I love that you refer to consolidation of like-needs tanks as 'changing the layout of your house!'
. . . a beautiful thing, that!

I'm derailing your thread (again) I just can't resist!!! Your house looks like TOO much fun!
(I'd get lost in there for days, eeerrrmmm, more like months, I think!)

All apologies, and back to the building!!! ^__^

It looks like at least 77 right now, but as I said I am working on getting more up. If you are ever in Oregon you are more than welcome to come get lost.

Awesome thread! I love reading and seeing these projects take flight.

This is a 40 breeder salt reef tank that I house a number of my anemones in particularly entamacea quadracolor types.But to be honest I am more into the corals so I might down size the anemone population..."Might".


Don't mind the algae I was just going to do all the clean up in one sweep.

And then there is one of my frag tanks on top.I don't know if any of you have moved reef tanks before but it is a tedious process when there are alot of corals involved and as you can see there are a few.

Got the fresh water moved first as it was the easiest and going in the bottom of the stack.
Going to aquascape a bit and pull some stuff out.
I like to start with the slope effect with the gravel.
All Natural.

When moving the salt tank I could not get my big long tentacle anemone off the bottom of the tank glass.Sooo I had to move the tank with alot of sand and some water,this made it heavy and I have an L stair way to get it through.Poor guy.
