Def looks very nice! Maybe looks like a 55g tank? Any issues with setup or is everything running smooth?

It's a 125, no issues so far other than tearing up plants but that is to be expected

Looks great. If you're going to keep those rocks like that in the back I would consider a power head to help keep waste getting stuck under there and having to pull all those rocks out during water changes.

Yes, have 3 power heads, seems to be doing the job, been going almost 4 months now. Vacuum it regularly and partial water changes

I like it! Power heads are a great idea and I see your using them. Good call. Good luck with the plants. No plants lasted in my tank.

One suggestion I may throw out there. And others can chime in of I'm wrong or right. Or maybe it's just more like an opinion.

I like to keep the front open for "free swim" all my scape is on the back stacked and on the sides.

Listen... Either way! Amazing job!!!

Here's my tank it has side shots to give you an idea of what I'm talking about.

Oh and congratulations!!! Your my 12,000th post!!!
