    Well, it's time to upgrade my 40 gallon greeder... I'm thinking either a 75 or a 90. All I have room for. I'm off to the LFS! I'll let you know which tank I get :headbang2:

    Looks great, you guys are still killin' me with these upgrades :)! Assume that LR is cured? Are you moving any water over from the breeder? Not concerned about you having "cycled" water just that it should be easier on the livestock transfer of you use a good amount of the old water.

    BTW, what's under the hood? What light fixture did you go with, Current NE?

    Hey Graham, I will be using most of the water in my 40. I have the 4 bulb Current running until I can figure out the LEDs. I am using my 20 gallon sump, skimmer, reactor and auto tipoff on the new tank.

    The rock is totally cured that is in the tank. I will move my rock from the 40 plus I have some dry rock too to add.

    Well I moved the rest of my stuff over from 40 to the 90 last night. The Pistol shrimp was not happy! He did create a new home as soon as he hit the bottom of the tank. I still have some dry rock to add. I need to work on the rock scape.
