    So I am a little late to the game on this thread, but here it goes. I had a reef tank for a short while 10-12 years ago and had to get rid of it for a couple of reasons. One I just couldn't afford it ( and really I still cant) and my home was a 1k sqf home with a 250 gal. tank in it. I couldn't stop the mold and mildew growth in the house. A couple of months ago a friend of mine bought a house in central Oregon with a nice 125 gallon fowlr tank in it that he didn't want. So I made a flyer and my wife and I took it into my LFS. As she was looking around she told me that she really missed watching the fish and how she would like to have another tank.... but smaller. I came up with this idea to build a beautiful budget tank, utilizing CL and other forums. So here is what I have come up with so far........ Brand new 40b......................... $30 craigslist 20 G acrylic sump.....................$25 craigslist Older Bubble Max skimmer......$30 craigslist The stand and hood I built ( I am a finish carpenter) ( 4 home depot 2x4 studs @ 3.41each $13.64 2 sheets of 1/2 birch plywood from a local bargain building materials store 2 @ $19.99 $39.98 1 quart of enamel paint $8.98 Euro hinges.................$10 Home depot 1x4s.............................$12 Home depot The crushed coral bed and the live rock was salvaged from the central Oregon tank. New 640gph sump pump........... $55 LFS Diamond bit and jig to drill the tank $19.99 Ebay Filter Sock.......................................$5 LFS Lock Line fittings and diffusers $ 24 LFS 10 feet of 3/4 tubing ......................$19.99 Home depot Overflow box...................................$16.99 Ebay The tank build without lighting $310.57

    No. This is the reefer code and it is vital to our hobby. http://reefbuilders.com/2014/12/11/reefers-code-formally-mike-paletta/

    I'd move the stuff from the biocube into the 200g after it has cycled. Then use the biocube to QT. If you use the 200g to QT and you get brook, your screwed.

    Thank you TheClark for informing me about the http://reefbuilders....ound-plug-play/ ! I want to thank president of pnwmas (JManrow) John Manrow for suggesting to look up Bob Fenner, who in turn connected me with Jake Adams at Reef Builders who wrote the article!
