Description: 110 gallon with a 30 gallon sump/refugium, compact flourescent lighting, coralife super skimmer for 125 gallon, over 400 Ibs. of rock ( I love live rock) and 200 Ibs. of sand in tank and refugium, 3 power heads (but need to add 1 more b/c there is a dead spot in the bottom right of the tank)

Quote: "Carpe diem"
About Yourself: Growing up I always had a freshwater tank and when I got into college I really looked into buying a large tank to set up as saltwater. I ended up buying my 110 gallon setup and eventually began working at the pet store to pay for my new and very expensive hobby. I even changed my major from fashion design to marine biology because I fell in love with it from the beginning. My tank is now my pride and joy and even though I'm moving in July to go to school (for marine bio.), I can't bring myself to sell it. So I'm making the move from Southern IL to Southern FL with the love of my life; ) Wish me luck!!!

good luck with the move and the major. fish avatar
