125 In Fargo, ND

I have now aquired a 125 that was a fresh tank now to start a build to make it a reef. going to take it slow as i build it out and build most items myself. First order of business is to clean the tank and build an oak stand. Canopy will be built once i get the lights.

Well i started to think of my stock list for fish

Here are my current Fish in QT
Diamond Goby
Flame Angel
Pygmy Cherub Angel
One Spot Foxface

Fish that are possible
Hippo tang
Yellow Tang
Naso Tang
Sailfin Tang
Achilles or Powder Blue or Powder Brown Tang (Love thier shape in the water)
Blue spot Toby Puffer
2 Black and White Clowns
CopperBand Butterfly
Purple Firefish
Blue Reef Chromis
maybe a Trigger if feeling bold to take the risk

I know I have to make my choices on the tangs but just some of the ones I like just have to see what I can get at the time i'm adding them.

Now for a new Skimmer any one use the Coralife Super Skimmer-Needle Wheel-220 Gallon I was looking at adding this to my 125 when i get it setup to help keep the water clear. also looking at a new RO unit any prefered units i was looking at a 5 stage unit to help with the minerals in te water here in the mid-west.

Well this weekend we got a few new additions to our 30 Gallon that will be the refugium when we move to the 125. Got a Blue Tuxedo Urchin and a pair of Black and White Clowns also got a new T5 fixture to be used on the refugium but provides better lighting for the 30 in the mean time. I do like those clowns and the fox face at 3" is a little pig always eating at the base of the algae clip and making the algae float around

Yeah i will love this once i get it set up . Right now i am resealing the tank and discovered it was built in 1989 using 1/2" glass so no center braces. I have seen this tank full with no bowing of the glass.
