And in my opinion maintaining a 180g wouldnt be that much different than in a 125g.
I like two cents. I'll take all of them you care to share. Ps from another thread but I like your little fat fish

I would've bought it even if I didn't plan on using it. That's a great price!

Or, the only thing more expensive than a happy wife is an unhappy one.
