    It'd love to have you come by. I'm free after 7pm this week except tomorrow (wednesday). I believe I am free in the early morning and later evenings on Saturday, Sunday.

    Updated the OP w/my RBTAs.

    People are coming by as soon as they can. This is first come first serve! Sorry, I wish I could hold this stuff, but it will only prolong my agony if you back out.

    Thanks. I'm hoping to sell most of this and move down to a reefer 170 (~40 gal) and start from there. 70 gallons is just way too much water volume to deal with now.

    Does 30 gallons make that much of a difference? I'm really curious since I'm going from a 30 to a 125. Am I getting in over my head?

    I dont think you getting over your head moving to a 125. I think there is more work involved with the 30

    In my opinion, 30 to 125 is a huge step. But it's not anything I would worry about. If you've already got most of your equipment and dosing regiment just realize that you'll have to adjust for the water amount. A lot more calcium, a lot more alk, bigger water changes, more salt, etc; and realize you may have to deal with (the brevy of) potential issues from any of that.

    That's something I thought about, and realized that I can have exactly what I want, in a more manageable ($ and time) package.

    The inhabitants have been spoken for! Will let people know if things don't work out.

    Going to a good home.
