I put 2-3 bags of sand in at the beginning in order to give smaller critters a place to hide and breed, but there is a lot of detritus buildup as well. In retrospect, I would not have put any sand in and likely won't in my next big system.

that's super great, especially with being hands-off!
Yeah, he is a friend of mine who is also into fish. So the tank doesn't get quite the love it used to, but they are keeping up with feeding, changing reagents and emptying the skimmer. I doubt they feed as much as I do, but things seem to be chugging along fine.What’s hapenning with the tank? Renters keeping up with it?
You got wed, you got a house and you’re getting a bigger tank?! Nice!Happy times, but the end of an era. Erica and I got married, and we closed on a house in Las Vegas. Good news is there is space for a much bigger tank in the new office, with a viewing space on the other side of a wall. So I will look at what makes sense there. Either 6 or 7 feet long, and 24" or 30" wide is what I think I have space for, then maybe 30" deep, but 24" deep that I have now isn't trivial to get to all corners with it against the wall.
This means it is time to start giving away frags and selling off coral, then the fish. I will likely keep the rock and crushed coral for the next tank, and maybe try to bring some live rock/crushed coral to Vegas if I make the drive to get the freshwater tank out or something. Definitely time to get a few more DBTC frags out to the club. Thanks for the help along the way with this tank BAR. It will help immensely for the design of the next one.
