Here is a little bit of an update!

I added some more ammonia today, and I am pretty sure this tank is close to being done cycling. I still don't have my sump going yet, but hopefully I will be able to fix the leak from the hose tomorrow. I also made about 22 gallons of water today. Not really exciting, but it is progress, lol.

Not sure yet, but I am hoping I will be done by at the latest this Friday. We will see though!

Going to test the ammonia is the 125g! Wish me good luck, lol. It should be around zero (for my tank to be cycled) so we'll see!!

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

I am pretty sure that the tank is cycled ! It all happened so quick, but I do have a decent amount of LR in there. Now I just need to get my sump up and running (hopefully by tonight), and do that huge water change (that should be fun, especially since I can't make all of the water at once, lol). Then after I do those things it is time to move over my Blue Hippo and Clown from 55g.

Thanks for reading!

keep doseing 2-4 ppm until you have live stock for the following day to keep your bio fillter strong and healthy.

So far, this is what the stock list is looking like at the moment.

1. Scopas Tang
2. Yellow Tang
3. McCosker's Flasher Wrasse
4. Red Head Solon Fairy Wrasse
5. Linespot Flasher Wrasse


The rest of the stocking is to be determined. The stock above isn't in stone yet either. I am completely open to suggestions!!

I think you made a good list. I'd love a scopas but no room for one. lol
And the yellow of course is the coolest of all.
You've picked some mid water level swimmers, any idea if you want any perchers or fish that occupy the sandbed?
