125 gallon reef build... from the beginning

This is where we will document our 125gal. build. We will add pics and info as we go along. Please feel free to comment and leave advice. We are new.

We currently have a 55 gal. We had just started adding coral when we came across a deal we couldn't pass up...125 gal. tank with stand, some rock and VHO lighting set up - all for $150!!

Cycle is done!! Just moved our rock from the 55 over. I know we need more rock, but what do you think so far?

I think its looking great!

Are you planning to add baserock or more live? If you add more liverock you may end up having a mini-cycle.
