New tank!

I have been given a 125g tank, it's may take me a while to set up (lack of proper funds), I currently only have a 36 gal, hob filter and skimmer, and one power head (800gph).

What exactly do/will I need for a 125g set up??? Equipment wise? Any recommendations are always appreciated! Thanks in advance!

What are you wanting inside the tank? Coral?

My 125 has the following...

Sump with Fuge and LED sump light
Return Pump 1100 gallons per hour
Skimmer rated for 180 gallons
Phosban reactor with GFO
Filter sock
3 LED lights (ebay ones)
200 lbs of rock
Sand (not sure how many pounds)
2 heaters
Controler
2 dosing pumps (calcium and alk)
Auto Top Off with bucket and return pump
Jebao wave maker
and a RO/DI filtration system for making water

Oh ya and coral and fish...lol

I would like to take me 36 and transfer what I have to the 125, and then redo my 36, but yes fish and coral. See my only concern is obviously I don't have most of the bells and whistles that the bigger tanks have, while I would love to run all of that its all new territory for me
