I bet you are so excited to start up the tank!

I am, I am! I apologize about such a late reply. I was a bit busy. I agree. Even the tanks that are 50,000 gallons aren't complete without a pair! They are the cutest little loves. This is my first tank, and I'm striding in (with some help from my dad)to saltwater and reef! Personally, no offense to the freshies, but I find saltwater gorgeous. And since my basement is a movie theater with a bar and pool table and such, what would look better down there than an aquarium? Tomorrow, after school, I plan on marking all of the spots that I could place the aquarium. And also, coral selecting is going to be a bit tougher than I imagined. There are so many choices, and I did not know that some were toxic! I thought that they were just like plants in a freshwater tank. That was my original plan, as a matter of fact. A little 10-gallon freshwater planted with a couple of cories and maybe a few other things. Is this your first tank?

Wow! I apologize. I did type a reply, it just wasn't appearing. And 125g? That's a lot!

I am currently using Purigen, Chemipure, and some carbon that came with the tank.

It definitely was a lot of work, but I do miss it. I am enjoying the small talk too though!

Hello! Sorry for not replying until now. What inverts do you have for a cleaning crew?

That's okay!

So far I only have my Cleaner Shrimp! I want some Hermits in the future though.

Also, I LOVE Mexican Turbo Snails. I have had them in tanks in the past, and they are amazing with algae.

My friend, who happened to get the Biocube 14 around the same time as me, recommends astreia snails(wait, am I thinkin of freshwater?) and turbos. So, those'll be great! My plan for stocking is a couple if small fish, then one a but larger one to take the stage. Any recommendations? One day, I hope to get a mandarin, but those are a pain to care for!
Also, I just read your article on shrimp in the reef aquarium. It's great!
And corals seem to be a bit tricky to plan out.
