No don't get the 125.... Get a 180g lol. If you're going to go all out, might as well go all out.

Ok, if you are going big, go 1000 gal. LOL I am following a build thread on a local reef club where a guy is doing just that. Man, what a tank.

Ha. Wouldn't that be something to have.

To throw my 2 cents in, I would, if I could, go back and get a 180g instead of the 125g I ended up with. Almost the exact footprint just bigger. lol There would be almost no limitation on the fish you could get. Just a few fish would need a bigger tank like sweetlips and groupers. And in my opinion maintaining a 180g wouldnt be that much different than in a 125g.

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

Saw a guy post a while back that because he lived in FL next to the ocean he was trying to figure out how to plumb his pool to the ocean so he could turn it into a reef and dive with his fish. LOL Now wouldn't that be cool.

Yeah. Sweety pie still says bills first. Although I still cruse craigslist for that deal we can't pass up. I may still toy around with this new idea for a bit. I've seen lots of pics and vids of 40b reef tanks. I like em.


4bulbs of t5 ho would be plenty on a shallow tank like this right? Grow anything I want?
