All, Two days before Katrina hit, I had a 135g tank, stand, and canopy delivered to my house to begin my career as a reefkeeper. The remainder of the equipment was to come on Monday, which turned out to be the day the actual storm hit. Needless to say I lost what I had taken delivery of. The equipment is all fine though. I am now getting to the point where I will be moving back to Lakeview late May. I was ready to order a new 150 (5'x2'x2') when my friend offered his 215 to me. The price is right and I can get it much quicker, but I am worried that I am biting off more than I can chew. I have a good job, so its not really economical worries, but more like fear of the unknown. I am an engineer so the complexity and chemistry does not scare me. I have never had a tank before. What do you guys think? Should I go bigger?
