i'll look forward to seeing this tank set up.

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

Welcome to the huge tank club!, just picked up a 220g myself this weekend at 72"x24"x30", took 6 people to safely move it.

Make sure your floors can take literally the ton+ of weight once that beast is filled with substrate and decorations etc.

10g Fry / Hospital / QT tank (as needed)

75g Saltwater Reef, Ocellaris Clownfish, Lyretail Antias (baby), Lemon damsel, Longtail Fairy Wrasse, purple dottyback, snails, crabs and a few LPS corals.

220g Still sitting empty (come on Lottery I need the numbers to come up!)
