I will start with photos they likely illustrate what the heading conveys. I am sure many can relate but quick note been in the hobby about 8 years, wife got me a 20 gallon freshwater which quickly progressed to planted with supplements and the such to harbor. I then moved my sights to saltwater and actually the coral captured me more than the fish. I soon found a 90g on Craigslist and my NYC studio had more space from fish tanks than couch. I moved to Long Island with my wife and tried but was unsuccessful in transferring about 50% of my coral. I regrouped and built out to the picture below. Then did a little remodel and convinced my wife a tank upgrade was in order. 220 but essentially 180 footprint just taller. Then I got overzealous and purchased corals and fish without proper quarantine methods and basically systematically lost 90% of everything. A one Reno was on the horizon so I basically gave up and figured I would start over. That thought brought my dream in wall fish tank...I understand some may scoff at not front access but as many know it is about harmonizing life and our obsessions and it was tank in the basement or no front access. I debsted doing a thread but I have learned so much that would enjoy others possibly procuring one bit of insight from my progression and current setup.
