Time for an Upgrade!!

I had my BC32 for about 13 months and outgrew it pretty darn quickly (pictured below) so decided to start a second tank... a small 20g long that I had sitting in the garage. I purchased a JBJ unibody for it and a few other accessories but as I was attempting to make the tank rimless, I broke it... Go figure. So what started as a cheap second tank turned into me selling the wife on the fact that we needed to upgrade our main tank. I did just that and ordered a 60 cube from Planet Aquarium and then proceeded to go all out on everything else. I ended up with the tank, a Trigger Systems sump and ATO resivor, a Syncra SDC 9.0 WiFi pump (overkill), Reef Octopus skimmer, Gyre pump with controller and a Kessil 360we light with mount and controller. Decided to build a custom stand with removable panels at 3 sides. Took about 2 weeks to get everything in and after a very long weekend, a flooded living room and a lot of stress, the transition is done and I managed to not kill anything and I managed to not get killed by the wife! #winning .

Thanks man!! The Trigger is not only good looking, but it performs very well. I really like how easily it adjusts the water level so my skimmer is working flawlessly. If you're in the market for one, I'd see if you can find one used cause good lord they are pricey
