    Id say wait for your current tank to establish itself a bit before setting up another marine tank.

    i have tried to run a few tanks at once and one always takes preferance over the other. not to mention the costs to keep a few tanks running with the basis needs met. if i were you i would choose 1 larger tank and stick with it.

    you will yield better results that way...

    I would say boot the red devil tank. Puffers are so interesting and charactable, whereas that red devil is ugly as an old boot and probably on his way out anyway ;-) Mwahahaha. Try find a shop with a huge display tank thats willing to take him...

    Agree with the above...use this tank to learn and hone your skills...you will be suprised how much you can still learn in just a few months even if its just in regard to tank/sump design for a new system...I speak from experience when I say there is nothing more annoying than a few months after setting up a new tank realising you could have planned it out so much better. :p

    Besides this tank looks like iy has a lot of potential, give it a chance to grow. ;)
