So we bought a tank. Which supposedly was 280 gallons. it is actually more like 200 gallons. apparently the guy measured wrong. It is 4 ft by 3ft by 25 inches tall.
 
So first off we moved my 72 bowfront from my linoleum floor into the living room where my 45 tall used to be. The 45 was torn down and the bowfront was reset up. We are waiting until it goes through it's mini cycle to put the fish and corals back in
 
 
 
Next we had to set up the stand in the old 72 spot. Keys to a good stand.
 
*must hold tank
*must hold two dogs and sump

How exciting.  Keep us posted with the progress.  Your dogs remind me of my cats.  They have to "help" with everything we do.

I will definetly keep everyone updated. we are planning to go get salt tomorrow to make up the initial water (we are looking at about two buckets just to get it running) We also have to go and get a 2" bulkhead from somewhere b/c the guy had to cut it off when he took it apart. he couldnt get it undone. So hopefully by tomorrow afternoon we will have it running with water.

we were originally planning on putting my 40 breeder in there as a refugium, but since the tank was only 3" deep instead of 4" we now don't have enough room for it. anyone have any ideas? i was thinking of just doing a rubbermaid container. they are easy to drill and i don't really need to see in it. even if i did i could go the clear route.

hopefully the weather is good we are in the middle of a snow storm! we have like 4 inches of snow right now on the ground.
this is a good bad weather project though!

Well after a long two days of hooking up plumbing and getting enough water made things are finally starting to fall into place.

Very nice rockwork on both tank.  The plumbing job is awesome too.
