My ever changing 125g and 55g's debut

Added a piece of driftwood in my 125g and some new plants. I finally bought an ok light fixture for my 55g and was able to do some aquaScaping. Boiled the DW for 4 hours, changing water when it gets really dark brown. Took me around 6 hours to finish everything not including boiling the DW. Well, cleaning the tanks is included in the 6 hours. lol

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

Thank you Sudz.

I run a CO2 system, six 65 watts PC bulbs and I dose MMN mix, iron chelate(dry ferts from aquariumfertilizers.com) and sometimes I dose excel by seachem. I'll start dosing N, P, and K. I also use root tabs for my heavy root feeders.
