I'm sold on a 125 gallon tank for my upgrade. This will happen at the end of March. What I am worrying about is will I need to cycle the new tank or will I be able to just move all livestock over in one day. I will be adding all new sand and Anywhere from 50-100lb base rock. I will be getting all new equipment skimmer, lights, power heads return pump etc.

So I will have the money for my upgrade on the 14th of March. I have been thinking of getting hid lights or three of the AI SOL LED's the tank will be a 125 or 180 depends on what I find. Going to have the overflow on one side is the tank. Does anyone think that it is a bad idea for the overflow and the return on one side? Going to spend around $3000 on the upgrade so I am hoping that there will be lots of response to this so I will know what to do
