    I'm thinking about moving into the new tank. I dipped a few zoas this morning and moved them over.

    I should take a photo.

    What your saying is-

    Your Tank has "officially" come out of the closet, Jim?

    Finally out of the closet!

    I still have some fish to catch and a rack of corals to move over. I haven't moved the apex and osmolator to the new tank yet either.

    The aqua scaping isn't too bad for a first pass. But I'm sure it will need some tweaking. Here are a few photos:

    Oh wow Jim, scape looks awesome! I'm really liking it

    Wish I would have though of those leveling feet. Mines off a bit

    looks like the top left slides out of your stand, is that for your apex?

    Yeah, I'm going to mount all the control equipment and outlets on that slide out...or at least that's the plan.

    I moved a few more corals and a fish over to the new tank last night. (Its hard to find time with Noah in Lacrosse...he's had 9 games in the last week.) I still have a large rock that I need to frag off the corals and a handful off green banded gobies that I need to catch and transfer over. Corals were starting to look a little better last night. Hopefully tonight I can get the remaining livestock moved over.

    With the crappy weekend weather, I spent some time working on getting all the equipment (top off, apex, etc) moved to the new tank. I was reminded of how many wires my system has as I pulled them from the tank into the back of the stand. With all the home improvement I've been doing, I've become pretty decent at pulling wires...which was a good thing considering the number of wires that needed to be run from the tank into the back of the stand. The top left shelf of the stand definitely isn't pretty in terms of how many wires are in crammed in there but I did manage to mount all the apex equipment on the pull out shelf.

    I had the first spill on the carpet next to the tank...didn't realize I had inadvertently pulled the top off line out of the back of the tank. The Osmolator had pumped a gallon of RO water on the carpet before I realize the line was laying on the floor. I will put a zip tie on it so it can't be pulled as easily.
