Wow. That has really come along. When I first bought my tank (set it up as FW years ago) I thought it was huge. Now I sit on the couch and look at how little space it takes up on top of my entertainment system. I am thinking a 125 would fit very nice up there. hehehehe Oh well, I can dream can't I.

My 125g FW tank seems so small compared to my 125g reef, it's really odd. lol Or maybe I'm just getting used to them, cause they dont seem as big as they did when I first got them. I was like SIX FEET omg, but it turns out they don't take up that much room after all. If I had to do the reef again, I'd probably have gone with a 180 or 220. hehe... a girl with a 125g can still dream too!

I haven't measured but my 45 is 3' long by 12" wide. Based on that, the top of the entertainment system is about 6' long and a good 30" wide. I could get a lot of tank on that. It is pretty sturdy too so I don't think I would have any trouble with the weight. If I were to gut the bottom, I would have plenty of room for misc. If turn my flat screen TV I can crawl behind it (it is angled in a corner) and I could put my 45 back there as my sump. Lord help me, I already have it all planned out and I don't even have fish in my 45 yet. Hehehehe. Are there any good methadone clinics recommended by this site or do you all just stay addicted? hehehehe

We stay happily addicted! Isn't it terrible? lol I'm looking forward to my next build, just gotta sell my 55g sw to make room and get funds for it. But nothing big this time, the 2 125g's are probably enough for now. There is a dead end you get to though, where you literally have NO ROOM for another tank. Heck, I have 2 in my kitchen!

hmmm... maybe a pico in the bathroom? or a betta tank? Havent had one of those before...see, it starts innocently enough hehe
