Tank upgrade!!! Lots of pics to come :)

Hey there :) I'm pleased to inform that the fever of upgrading has hit me already :P im not even 2 months into my marine fish keeping yet and im Upgrading from my small 30 gallon to a ........ 70 gallon!!!!! I'm going to keep this thread updated with lots and lots of pics as my upgrading continues. the current tank dimensions are 3 feet length by 1' width and 18" height... the new one is going to be 3' in length, 2' in width and 18"in height.So that a whole extra foot to improve my setup its almost a cube tank. I will be ordering the tank today or tomorrow and it should be ready by Monday i will then start with the transfer!! I cant wait!! until then.. here is some pics of the inhabitants of my 30 as it stands today...
My Yellow tail blue damsel.. who i have found to be very mild.. he wont even touch my domino damsel... he minds his own business the whole time. With my Yellow eared angel fish Who is one of the reasons im upgrading tank size....100_5872.JPG

Great news on tank upgrade, am considering going from a 55g to a 90g. Look forward to seeing the tank as it progresses.


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!)

Is that species of clownfish the same as Nemo?? I never knew until that movie came out that there was more than one kind :) I saw a pair of them in a fish shop here, they were really really tiny, I wasn't sure if they were just babies or if there's such a thing as dwarf clownfish. Kinda hope not since it will make me want some! :P

My Tank: 8G Freshwater 1 Betta, 4 Small Congo Tetra

I just got a pair of clowns a few days ago and I love them. They are very interesting little fish. They spend a lot of the day bombing around my tank playing in front of my power heads. I got a 55 gallon tank and while its definitely plenty big enough as time goes on I find myself envisioning a 75 to 100 gallon tank

I will get some pictures later on, sure. Not much has changed since I started it. Had an cyano outbreak although that seems to be gone now.

Cichlids are doing great thanks, lost a BN pleco but other than that still all the same.

Will for sure start a build thread once I actually pick up the 90g tank and all the new substrate and live rock, am considering options for lights, Ecotech Radeon XR30 may have to be an early christmas present to myself, either that or a cheaper LED option, not too happy with my T5H0's that I have at the moment.
