I've made up mind, I will do 3 more builds and then thats it. I went into the 125g thinking it was SOO big but in reality it's really not. lol So the 60g, the cichlid build and the reef upgrade.

I had planned on selling the 20g rimless and the biocube but now I'm having second thoughts. LOL I kinda would love an invert tank but not sure if the 29g would be overkill. I for sure am gonna sell the 20g rimless though, too small and the glass is so thin it always worries me. Unless I run across a 14g cube on criagslist and make that an invert tank....what do you guys think?

Why not use the 20 to reproduce your own phyto??? What's wrong with free food???

An invert tank would definitely be cool. Especially since you have a shrimp-killer in your 125g.

Please excuse my ignorance, but what exactly is an invert tank? I thought it was no fish, just coral. But I looked it up and I saw various things. For now, I'm not planning on any fish. So might my tiny 20 gal b considered an invert tank? thank you

An "Invert tank" is simply a tank, usually a reef, with only inverts like shrimp, snails, crabs, conch, etc. you're right no fish.
