Nice!!!!! What are the dimensions of the tank? This will help with lighting choices. And good idea on getting a sump that big. Really good idea. I'll be following.

I purchased the 220 tank from a friend with the sump. It has 3 mh not sure of the wattage. He had sps so enough im sure plus pc actenics. I also have two 55 by 3w led fixtures. And a pc light off my 55 that will be going over the fuge. I plan on having a 30 gal fuge in the 125. The tank is 6 foot by 2 foot and 30" deep
I have an overstocked 55 that i will be parting out in the process. Still looking for a return pump that can bring water up from the basement with adequate flow without using to much power. Any suggestions on any aspects of the build will be much appreciated!!!!
