Back at it again

Recommended Posts

Hi, thanks for the add. My name is nick and I have been out of the hobby for about 7 years due to military moves and so on. I had a 90 deep reef tank with a 20l sump back in Virginia and it was painfull to tear down and I sold everything with no intentions of getting back into it. While I am currently in the process of standing up my new to me 60g cube with 24 gallon (I believe) sump. Just got done framing the stand today and have a long way to go but itll be worth it. dd150891d6df0e4f5e9f8d4dfb174963.jpg

Welcome back!  Lots of regulars on the forum have had to drop out on occasion due to life being what it is but often return - seems like reef keeping is a hard habit to break!  Good luck with the new build... looking forward to seeing the progress.

Maybuave spoke to soon. Found a very slow leak in a corner. Now to find another 24x24 cube to fit the stand.

Probably could reseal it once it’s dried out.

I've read that it's not advisable to reseal. Is it worth the trouble or better to move on?

Well that is a valid concern. I would say it depends a bit on where and how it failed. I have successfully resealed a few things but am by no means an expert. We do have a few folk on here who could probably advise as they have built their own tanks - hopefully one might chime in.

That might be the fastest upgrade I can remember. Barely got the first one wet. Just think of it as saving a lot of time. 😁

Maybe, I think I need to do some structural work on my floor joists now to support this tank so I'll call that even, but we've always wanted a 120 so 140 is even better haha

Sorry to hear about your other tank. I hope the new one is leak free. On the good side I will sign you up for new member free coral drawing.
