Hi I'm Brian, Are there any others close to Danbury CT.? I started out 5 years ago with a 36 gal. mixed reef tank.I added the live sand, live rock, a few corals and 4 fish, after 6 months, my tank shrunk. I looked at the space where the tank was and realized that I had a max. of 4 feet to utilize, so I bought a 55 gal. and sold the 36 gal. tank, at a loss of course. I then added the live rock and corals and fish and sand. Obviously, I needed more $and, rock, corals and fish. After the additions I was finally happy, it was perfect, UNTIL I tried to clean the front glass and realized that I couldn't squeeze my hand into the 4 inch space that was there between the rock and the glass. I lived with it for a year and then, keeping with my 4 foot max. size tank, I upgraded to a 75 gal. I could have fit a 90 gal. but after selling my 55, at a loss of course, I kept my same 390 watts of PC lighting. I swapped out the 130 watt PC section of my light for a 108 watt T-5.This tank has been going strong for 3 years now and I can FINALLY say, I'm done and I love it. Here's a pic. I like to trade corals so any locals, give me a shout.
