    It's been a while since my last tank build. Long story short, my tank was in the garage after my move. The contractor did some work in the garage when he was not supposed to. 90% of coral died due to some sort of a chemical contamination. :-(( At any rate, I tried to get back into it, but I kind of lost steam.

    However, I am ready now, and I am looking for a bigger tank. 240G or greater. Prefer class and starphire if possible. I prefer to go with more depth than height. So something like 72 or 84L X 24 H X 30+ D.

    Thanks for your help.

    I know that guy that is selling. His SPS keeping husbandry is amazing. and He is very OCD about his tank. Whoever buys that tank is very lucky.

    Pending. But escrow has not closed yet, so talk to your Reef Estate Broker to submit a backup offer.

    I checked out the tank yesterday... what an amazing tank. Unfortunately, it will not work because it's a peninsula tank. I tried to make things work in the house, but just couldn't. :-( It's a heck of a deal if you're not picky whether its a peninsula tank or not.

    For tank alone it’s totally worth the purchase

    Possibly, the wood frame made me think glass.

    In which case yeah sure it's reef ready lemme get my hole saw :)

    It is acrylic
    It was "reef ready" before I sealed the bottom and cut the holes in the overflow to create a bio-filter
    But it is easily drilled for bulkheads and patch the holes in the overflow
    The nightmare will be carry it up the 3 floors

    And it's not my tank
    I used to service it as an African cichlids tank when it was in his office

    So... after deliberating for some time, I decided to go custom. Another 6 weeks before delivery. Keep you guys posted.
