i'm thinking of starting a new fish only tank, i need it to be large 180+ gal just wondering if anyone out there has something for sale so i can start to gauge the price. i was thinking of building a 900gal pond sump in my basement over the winter and maybe plumb the fish only and the 320 SPS tank i'm setting up into that!

I would think you are crazy to do such a thing, which, of course, makes the idea perfect! haha

You would probably be better off keeping your reef separate from the FO system, as I could imagine the water in the FO system would be pretty dirty compared to the reef...

Here is an idea of new tank prices. The June Specials for reef ready tanks are 210gal $500.00 all-glass,125gal perfecto $315.00......180 should come in about the $400.
Used most people pay $1/gal.

soltaker i'm gonna get an air exchanger and on top of that my dad works for a company that sells some sort of high tech dehumidifyers. i guess they use them in sterile labs to keep stuff out. so he can get me one for a REALLY good deal. He says that it'll dry out your nose instantly unless your wearing a mask.... or have 900 gal of water in the room ;) i'm gonn get the info on these as my dad also says he can sell to the club at a good discount (not th e"son of 24 years" discount =P) but still a good one
