Hey thats pretty awesome. Soon your parents won't like the local fish store employee discount either. But that is the best ways to get great deals. Eventually, you will be placing specific orders for yourself on their weekly orders.

Why do you need that fan on the tank? Does it get too hot? I can't tell from the image but maybe prop up both ends so that air flow can get underneath the light fixture. That would help disberse the hot air.

The fan is both for the tank and my room since it gets too hot
I am going to build something in the stand to prop up the light
But ever since the fan has been there my tanks temp has been a constant 74 degrees (F) without the fan and the heater on it was pushing 82 degrees
So i put the fan there to cool it

Updates!!!
I just got A 18 Watt UV Sterilizer, and a protein skimmer for the tank. I also just got a 50 GPD RO Unit for all my tanks but I am just waiting for a TFC Membrane for it

The Tank is really cloudy, but I added a UV sterilizer so it should clear up soon

Why do you think a UV will clear the tank?
I take it you are not QTing any livestock before adding it to a 125 tank?

I see you still have all those sponges and pot scrubbers in your sump. Keep an eye on your nitrates and be ready for lots of water changes to keep them down.

I havent added any fish other than the Chromis, The UV Did clear up the tank ALOT
The only thing in the sump now are some pot scrubbers and some Bio balls all of the other sponges are gone
I plan on getting more bio balls and removing the rest of the pot scrubbers.

The only way a UV will clear it up is if it`s an algea bloom in the water. The UV will get rid of algea spores. Evidently that was the problem if it`s starting to clear up. Good luck on the tank.

Thanks
