First off I would like to say I have missed being an active part of RC and not just lurking about.Since my last tank build I have moved and now am a Marine science student in my senior year at the University of Hawaii at Hilo. I have just started building a coral propagation tank. My hope is that I will be able to help rebuild the coral reef areas by propagating corals found around the island and then transplanting them back out on the reefs. This will be a slow process but one I am very excited about. I also am looking for any donations of equipment, so if you have something that is not being used and you would like it out of your face I will be happy to take it off of your hands :D I hope you enjoy this thread as much as I do. Thanks for looking.

Tank update for 10/08/2017
First, off I forgot to post the tank size, there will be (2) 69" X 129" X 24" with a third added at a later time.The float stand that was set up last week was not going to hold very well, so today we started from scratch. The new stand will be with cinder blocks and 4X4 beams. This will hold the weight with no problems. I was also donated (4) 12" X 23" X 15" and a stand. I was able to clean up the tanks today but was unable to move the stand today. I hope within the next couple of weeks I will be able to move the stand, get it cleaned up and painted and start in on the plumbing.:spin1:
Pics will follow as soon as I figure out why they will not load
