I've asked this already in one of my other threads but thought i'd make a dedicated thread for it in the appropriate section\n \nI'm getting a used stand and am thinking i want to refinish it, the problem is that i'll have fish that need to be located somewhere. I'm moving the tank and don't think trying to refinish it during the move will make things go any smoother :mrgreen:\n \nmy options are the following i think\n \n1. Move everything into my place, set up the tank and refinish at my leisure. I'm not sure of the risk of poisoning my tank because while i don't think i'd splash any stain or varnish into the tank because i'd obviously do the canopy else where, i'm still concerned about air polution and fumes and so forth.\n \n2. When i move everything Don't set up the display tank and keep the fish in the quarantine tank. My concern here is that the QT is only 30 gallons and there are about 7 fish including 2 tangs and a wrasse and i don't want them to stay stressed from moving by leaving them in a little tank all packed .\n \n3. Have all the fish seperated in big rubbermaid container while i refinish. The big bins are still only like 20 gallons but would it be easier on the fish to be seperated? I'd also need to ensure i have enough heaters and power heads for each bin. I wouldn't have any filtration at all so i'd need to be fairly quick.\n \nBasically i am way too excited for my new tank and am obsessing about any detail i can :^:\n \nAlso i'm thinking of setting up the tank as a sort of wall between the living and dining rooms. So it would be viewable from both long side and 1 short side. It has dual corner overflow . Does any one find its a pain having to spread the livestock around so it looks good from all sides? Does it look silly being able to see an overflow from the back? do you find the corals don't pop as nicely with not having a black back drop?\nThe stand only has doors on one side so do you think it would look silly from one side?\n \nwork is slow and i'm obsessing :mrgreen:\nthanks for putting up with me !!
