glad you mentioned a top. i bought 2 40g tops to use for my 125. they dont quite fit on the 125, they are too short. i put one on my sump to keep the cats and dog out of it, pulled the old nasty one out of the garage and put it on the 125, hopefully just for 2 weeks. its an old oceanic tank with the glass middle brace not the frame brace, anyone have a link for the correct glass tops for the 125 handy, im looking online once this posts.

back to this tank. ive been told that i shouldnt use air bubbles because of salt creep. so how do i maintain proper oxygenation in this tank with out it and not using a sump? my filtration for this is going to be a hob skimmer and a canister filter. i dont want to starve my fish of oxygen.

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

surface agitation alone? can do that in my freshwater tanks too?

and you know that little piece of plastic you put on the glass lid that you can cut to allow for whatever hardware you have for your tank? is that going to allow enough air movement for o2 and co2 to change places?

No, i don't think that will allow for very much gas exchange. What's the filtration on it going to be? A HOB filter will do fine for oxygenation.

That should be good enough. Also, I have 2 800gph ph in my 40g breeder so you should be fine.

If you angle the ph right, it could work.
