From an old RC Lounger friend yesterday and drove up north to pick it up.
Gorgeous SPS ranch with close to 40 pieces, some 14". In a 180 along with a few monster LPS pieces included a near dinner plate size Chalice and a near footbal size Maze Brain.

Everything is in a 300 temporary trough for now, didn't break a stick moving it.
Thanks Billy (President of our Illinois Valley Reef Club) for the help.

Will be joining my stuff soon, maybe in the 180, maybe convert my 240 back to a reef, who knows...

That's what everyone who helped move it was hoping.

Nice acquisition, John:thumbsup: Keep a close eye on the tank for pests...new environments can allow something evil to take over. I had this happen with a few majanos many years ago, then bam they were everywhere. Those LPS on the sand are beautiful.

Everything is going in my 240 in a couple weeks after I sell all my big fish.

240, is that big enough? Don't you think you probably need a little bigger tank now?

I made an offer on a 7'x5'x30" 650, but the got got greedy and wanted too much Chris.

Just borrowed a 300 and a 100 gallon Rubbermaid trough to hold the fish and rock in so I can get the 240 ready for the big change.
