Reading your thread is getting me excited about me getting my 125 or 90 cuz I found the 125 with just tank and stand for 250 or the 90 which has 8 koralias, 10 gallon sump, ATO, 2 skimmers, 2 RO/DI units, 8 bulb T5 unit, and a tank stocked with corals including birdnest coral and a G. Clam for 1,000. I find it hard to believe since he didn't post any pictures lol Sorry for hijacking your thread though.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Did my morning water tests on the 125g. No ammonia, nitrites or nitrates as far as I can tell. I kinda wish i had some trates just so I know things are going well. LOL I haven't tested with the salifert yet, maybe later, I try to save those tests for special times. hehe

I'm still loosing siphon on my overflow so I am going to bite the bullet and buy a continuous overflow. There goes $125 bucks I wasn't planning on.

I will be listing the current overflow on craigslist or eBay maybe, try to get some of my money back. Just goes to show I shouldn't have tried to cut corners as far as cost.

Ok, so I was productive today!

I ordered my new overflow, went fish/coral shopping and got the sand for my pico.

I didn't get any fish, I was really tempted but I held strong. I did however pick up a few things:





These guys are all in the 55g for now.

Yes, I picked up a brain, candycanes and the star fish. The candycane was HUGE so I got it even though I have a smaller specimen. My first star fish, I'm very excited! He's already in the glass looking cool....
