    I joined BAR many, many years ago, and spent years on the BOD before moving house back in 2011 and tearing down my setup.

    I'm seriously considering a new set up. Not sure if anyone on here remembers me? I'm sure a lot has changed since then and looking forward to getting involved again.

    Howdy to all!

    Well, ok, I might be planning something similar to my last set up. ~ 300g full reef with ~ 100g sump. Haven't thought much beyond that, but I do have a nice spot in the house that I can plumb through the wall into the garage for the sump and all the noisy/messy stuff :)

    No, no - I messed up the web site from time to time, and was quite involved on the BOD, but not President :)

    Let's see how well I can sell the idea of getting a new tank with my wife first - that's the #1 challenge :)

    You should check out ashburn2k's frugal 55g tank thread! From my understanding, he scouted out free/cheap stuff for quite some time in order to set up his tank for a relatively low cost
