    Its in as we speak all set up, im running a slow drip loop from the nano tank to the new one on a constant cycle to match temperature and water parameters so when the time comes to move the little guys its pain free and easy :biggrin:

    Welcome, just tell the wifey the reason you have to upgrade to a bigger tank is because the live rock is starting to grow :w00t:

    Welcome man. All the best on your new setup. Please don't rush it, always research and read up before making new change to your tank.

    Welcome! Dig the new tank. An empty tank has so much potential! Enjoy he journey and as devesh said, take it easy. It's usually much easier the second time around though.

    Congrats on the larger tank. It's a nice size with lots of potential. Just remember patience is the name of the game.

    Welcome to MASA.
    Your larger tank looks very similar in design to the tank my daughter has. We have just gone through a tank reboot, so please feel free to ask for any info on what we did on this type of tank.
