    So Im going to add another tank ( Fish only ) and I can fit a 72 inch in my spot or jam a 96 inch ( which only leaves me about 10 inches between this new tank and my reef. ) Both will be in my garage. Over which brand to use. Marineland has a 300G i like and Im looking at others as well. Glasscage has a variety of custom tanks available. CL always has something as people are always getting out of the hobby. Since its going to be fish only I dont have to go anything too crazy. Just want a good amount of room for fish to swim. As far as cost is concerned I also dont want to go too crazy. Seen a lot up to $3000 and even more. Pretty much don't want to go below a 240G. Good thing is this isnot happening tomorrow so I have time

    Yeah --- coral like fish. It's all a ruse to convince the significant other that there won't be more coral bills coming in. It's brilliant!

    Marble wrasse for sure. When I moved last time I gave mine to Jimmie. It's all grown up now so I want to get another small one. And Bruce that's a good one. But I said from day one when we bought this place I am getting 2 tanks. One reef and the othe FO

    I've seen that as well but I like a lifetime warranty to come with this one. I will admit it's much cheaper to buy used than new. I've seen some 240's in the Sac area

    At that size, custom is not so different from standard, so go with 7'
    Also go deep!

    Sounds like a fun project.
