So I transferred everything to my 75g tank and added a few more pieces of driftwood. Changed the gravel, and put on a nice sump system.

Very nice tank. What is your equipment specs? Are you planning for Co2?

Basically, 2 X 24 inch 6700K Coralife Freshwater Lights, TOMS PS3 Overflow Skimmer Sump with ATO, 1 In Sump Heater (50w), 1 Heater in tank (300w), and 1 Koralia Nano on the opposite side of the tank from the overflow to give a bit of cross current.

As for a CO2 system, I'm looking but not sure what I want to get yet. I think a Tank system is a bit overkill for what I am doing, so I will probably go with a Canister Style model a bit later when I can afford to get it.

Looking good, I like the look of the drift wood in there.

Me too, actually. Looks way nicer than the fake stuff I was using in previous tanks. :) and the 1 piece I had in this setup before the transfer. :)

I've had some say yes, some say no. :) So I don't really know as of yet, but going to find out. :)
