Frequent moves

Just PCS'd to Ft Riley KS and I have gotten sick of tearing down large tanks and trying to sell off livestock and excess equipment every few years. I've decided to try out a 10g reef and see how I do. Anyone else downsize with all the moves?

You can go even larger. I had a 29G and was fine, I was able to fit everything in the shotgun seat of my cobalt, except my 3 5-gallon jugs were in the trunk.

Lol Just keep all the equipment and start over each time. I sold my 90 on my last PCS. Now I just got done setting up a 270. Setting it up is probably the best part.
