I am happy to say that i have finally found a tank and a source of live cuttlefish and it seems to be coming together. As long as the people i am buying the tank from dont get cold feet!!!

It is a six foot x 2 x 2 1/2 with a 3' sump skimmer, way too much liverock (ill have to give some away!) uv steriliser, double halides, some coral (not much) and has been profesionally plumbed and circuited!! It comes with a bunch of other stuff and quite a nice cabinet - i'd love to hear what you think!!

Any comments or suggestions? :P It seems like it is finally coming together! - (i got it cheap too becuase they are moving and are VERY desperate!! :twisted: hehe)

Good stuff!

My advice is to get as much of the stuff as you can and sell whatever is extra to help you pay for it...

You may want to start thinking about the logistix of how you are going to move it and what you will do with the live rock and water etc while you move the tank???

good one

:cry: I could cry!...

i had all the logistics figured - they were getting a crane in (they had to move furniture as well) and got a friend/aquarium shop owner to help out and hire a truck...

...the day before moving someone offered twice as much!!!

:cry: :evil: :bugout:

ARRRRRGGGGGGGHHHHH

I guess thats life...but man life can be annoying

gaz-uh-what?! :shock:

Then again it might be better and safer to get a new tank, after all, who knows what might have been used in that tank. :roll:
