    Swapped out my 90g tank for a 180g tank today. Still have to put the trim around the tank, but everybody is in the tank and doing well. Here are some pics.

    Well, the water cleared up nicely, parameters are normal. I went up to try to get some store credit for the Fluval FX5, bu tthey weren't offering enough, but I did manage to spend some money. I added a sailfin to the tank. He's getting along very well, he's hanging out with my foxface, and enjoying some algae sheets.

    I put the trim back on the wall, now I've just gotta clean everything up!

    Here are the pics.

    So what do you get when you buy a 180g fish tank for your fish?

    8 fish crammed into 3 gallons!:D

    Swim you lazy bastards! They act like they're all huddling around a fire!

    Picked up a couple of favia the other day from a guy that I buy stuff from on CL. His tank (which is incredible by the way) is so full that the bigger one was getting stung so he sold them both to me to clear up some room. Got a nice deal on them. Here's the pics.
