    Getting back into the hobby

    Yeah. That's why I've had to stay away from the hobby for so long. I've moved almost once per year through college, med school, and now residency.

    Getting back into the hobby

    I'll be miving in just over 2 years. From MI, likely out west. Is it all feesible to transport a tank long distance? Obviously, everything would have to be taken down. I went to one of my LFS today, and saw a 53g. Really liked the dimensions. Same footprint as a 40g, but mire height.

    Beautiful tank! You have a very streamlined and organized filtration system. Definitely a set up to aspire to.

    I went to buy a fish, and came back with this:

    How do you like the filtration system that came with the kit? I really like how streamlined these types of tanks are, but I don't know much about how well they work.

    My 600 gallon reef tank

    Wow, with a tank that size and you're live rock structure, this feels like a small chunk of a real coral reef. I would love to have something like this one day.
