Nice! And it works well? do you have it throttled back any with a ball valve? You have two drilled overflows too right? Sorry for all the questions just wanna make sure I got what I should have. lol

Sounds like you got some awesome stuff carey! Do you think you will upgrade again after you get the 180 or 220?

Nope, I have one more upgrade in me for the 125g and then thats it.LOL

I did find a 300g tank though I have to call about today,. was thinking that could be the cichlid tank upgrade.

Also had my eye on a really local 250g drilled tank but it's 8 feet tall with canopy so I don't think I could work in the tank really well. lol But a 180g should be doable. What I really want is the front to back dimensions so I can have more sandbed corals. And well, just more room in general. i already have the wall picked out to use too. Just a matter of finding the right tank for a cheap price.

Wow, a 300g for Cichlids would be so cool! Good luck!

I have it going as is. Not dialed back at all. I have two overflows so the plumbing is in a "Y"

A 250 would work! Lol. I have a ladder next to my tank at all times because I raised the stand an additional 4 inches so total package is about 7 feet. Plus- I have become a pro with the grabber. This might sound cheesy, but I also cut a small hole in the top of the canopy for easy food dropping!

Also, if your willing to make the drive- there's a 125 for sale in port Charlotte with full package for 200$

I happened upon a female anthias for my male squareback today for $15 and couldn't resist. Two of them would probably have been too much fish so I'm gonna try a single female. After acclimation she was out and about with the blue lights on but now she's huddled under a rock overhang hanging out. She had been swimming with the male and the yellow tang didn't even pay any mind to her so it looks good so far. I just shut the lights all the way down to give her a chance to regroup. The fish had been in the store for at least a month so I felt ok about adding her directly.

Looks like I might be done with stocking. :-( Although there should be room for one more fish if I push it. just no idea what to add lol

Here's a shot of my newest addition
