What is GIRS? And, I'm not sure about Petco. Do they sell anything over 75g for $1 a gallon. I'd like a 125, or maybe order a 200gal acrylic that is shallower

I personally don't like their forum engine but oh well what can you do. It's better now after a major upgrade.

That is usually 2-3 times/yr and you just have to watch for announcements. Usually someone on GIRS posts when it happens.

Really. I haven't had a reef tank yet. I'm setting up a new 125 right now with dual corner overflows. Debating on building a stand or buying a metal dual 125 stand from a guy in Iowa city. I'd like to make it a planted fresh water community tank, or put a mud puppy in it with feeder fish. Just last week I started reading up on saltwater. A tank that big I feel I would waste its potential with freshwater like I have always had. I also have a 76 gal. Freshwater right now
