Reefing newb
One year ago this month I got my first saltwater tank. It was a 42 gal Hex. Within 7 months I was already wanting to upgrade. I bought a 110 gal with stand and canopy from the same LFS I had bought the 42 gal Hex, I had decided to go with a FOWLR tank because I wanted a Picasso Trigger really bad. I also wanted to see both sides of the tank so I decided to use the tank as a room divider between the living room and dining room. Slowly I got everything set up.

Just the other day I donated my Blue Line Trigger, Dog Face Puffer and Snowflake eel to a school that has a 240 gal tank. In order to catch the fish I had to take all the rock out so decided to rearrange my rocks. I love it so much better now and ran out and got a good size Clarkii Clown and Lawnmower Blenny. I plan to find a suitable Sea Anemone for the Clown. My long term plan is as my Triggers outgrow their tank I will find them large suitable homes and go back to non aggressive fish so I can enjoy stars, CUC ,corals and some more interesting fish!110 gal tank with base and canopy in cherry wood 5ft long 51/2ft tall 18 in deep

Here is a side few of the tank. I was happy with the rock rework because there are fewer dead spot and the line of rocks are much thinner.
