They got room in the 90g in the back, I'm sure I can get the 125 up and running like that.

Bleach will kill everything. Set the tank up outside. Get as much as you can out the let the tank fill back up and let it overflow for about an hour. This will make sure the water is not only continuously diluted but also there will be a high turnover to the point of dissipation of the bleach.

K, I'll do that. I need ph's and LR now. I'll get started cycling. Should I do dsb for a fowlr? I got a 5" dsb in the 90g, but it is reef.

3 or 5 inches. From what I read when I started, 4 or 6 can be algae headaches.
