Hey all, so I've been waiting for this to come. I've upgraded to a 40gal breeder from a 20gal long. My decision to choose a 40gal breeder over a 55gal is the fact that the 40 breeder as a width (back to front length) of 18" and the 55 is only 13. I wanted the extra size in width so that I could make a more 3D aquascape vs a rock wall. I have a mix of new rock and old rock so that helped seed the tank and allowed for me to more quickly introduce my tank inhabitants sooner. However I had to rush and add them a bit sooner than I wanted. Reason for that was because after moving apartments I couldn't re-setup my 20gal like it was and my corals started to die so I had to make the switch a week sooner. All corals that didn't die in the 20gal have made nearly full recoveries as of currently. Some are still healing. Total loss was only my pavona and birds nest. Here are some pictures of the build. I will post more up-to-date pictures tomorrow. The build isn't complete in construction and I still have some small rock work to do until that's complete. Right now I've been focusing more on recovering my corals.

Ah nothing like a good upgrade. I hated setting up my 75. I'm very impatient and it took about a week for my cloudyness to go away. But that was partly my fault
