125gallon tank pics

Here are some pics of my new 125gallon setup. It still a work in progress, but here are some pics. The hood is a DIY custom hood to house two 72" VHO 50/50 white bulbs on an Icecap 430 ballast. The lighting is great. The heater is a Pro Heat 350watt titanium heater. Substrate is play sand (100lbs for $5). Filtration is being taken care of with a Fluval 404, Eheim Ecco 2231, and a Magnum 220. Im using three hagen 301 powerheads for flow.

Thanks

I have the two 72" 50/50 VHO bulbs and the two 36" stock bulbs. Im hoping to replace those soon with some Hagen Powerglos.

Thanks everyone. I love the lighting. The fish are not afraid either, so theyre happy as well. Now, I just have to get a stocklist going and order some more cichlids.
