    Sounds like you're doing the same thing I am....downsizing for awhile. I'm working on a 29 biocube right now.

    Just dont have the room in this house to do a big tank the right and SAFE way. The last one had cord and wires all over all plugged into 2 sockets in one room. Kept having bad thoughts! It was time for it to go. Still go down the hallway looking for lights when I get home from work. Need a tank. This one is going in the kitchen so my son and I can look at it when we are eating dinner and watching Sponge Bob. O ya hes watching S/B not me! LOL

    Will be keeping the Picasos, A Nem for them if it stays in one place, my watchman Goby, and maybe a Jawfish. Going to keep this tank as highend as possible, dont want it to fill up two quick. No SPS or Montes!!! Well maybe one or two. Have to see how the LED's do with the hard corals. LOL

    Great choice!

    I am thinking my next tank will either be a smaller Nano, or a GIANT 240+. Waiting until I move to a place with a basement for the big tank though. A nanocube might work well for what I want though.

    Can't wait to see it come together.

    Room tends to be my problem for me also. Not having a basement is a real problem in the reefing world. With a bigger tank, trying to keep things neat and easy to access was a problem, not to mention a fire hazard. When everything was running during the day it would always be in the back of my mind. This tank should be clean and neat and easy to maintain. Wont have to worry when we go on vacation.
