CA2OR Posted October 19, 2010 Share Posted October 19, 2010 Just thought I would give you guys a heads up. Although I am not leaving the hobby....I am leaving coral. After a 3 year stretch I have found my tank to be boring. I designed this tank around the corals with the fish as an after thought....well no more. My system is currently in the progress of being parted out. I am currently contemplating either a 240g that is available or asking Wanareef to build me a tank....I am only $150 away from the 240 ATM for tank, stand, canopy already drilled for closed loop. I am going to design this tank around aggressiveness. I am shooting for Triggers, Lionfish, maybe a grouper, puffer and wolf eel or something. I have also secured 2 baby cortez stingray's. I am going to try and hold onto my Melenarus Wrasse, Niger Trigger, and LMB....maybe even both. But all the rest of the fish are gonners.... I am not allowed to post in the classifieds here so I apologize for being unable to allow you guys to get anything I have. But I am sure if you are "savy" you will locate my thread. So after the coral is gone....then the fish and remaining rock will be listed....then finally the equipment. I might hold onto my skimmer but I am unsure....might be too small for the new tank. I will be coming back to coral after I get the tank populated. I am doing a DIY rock wall along the back of the 240....which is 96x24x24....and the wall will start 4 inches off the bottom of the tank and end 4 inches from each side.....it will go all the way to the top though. I am doing DIY so I can have overhangs and outcoves for the corals when ready, while still having the entire bottom of the tank sand. This way the stingrays will have plenty of room and the sand line will go all the way to the bottom of the wall. I will be putting a ton of LR in the sump and fuge though. I am going with LED's for the main display light....I will be putting a 250w or 2 around the middle to prepare for the coral to be added. The LED's will run the entire length. I am thinking of keeping my 250w HQI lighting to use as a fuge light....that way I can grow frags down there without issues. Anyway....just wanted to let you guys know. I am keeping the 14 running with the prizes for the Zoa Grow Out Competition as well as the grow out frag I have. There are a couple corals I am keeping....mostly due to rarity...but to give you an idea here is what has happened so far to show this is serious.....it is all going. Sold already are..... 1 frag of Stupid Brights, 1 Rainbow Milli frag, Lakers, Both Candy Cane frags, Tubbs Blue's, Dendro, Fuzzy Mushroom with extra's, Radio Active Dragon Eye's, Blue Angels, Insane Purples, Worcester, Nightmare, Unknown Rainbow, Frag of stupid brights, Insane Metallic Orange, Orange Rainbowm, Fuzzy Mushroom with extra's...
