It's a little more to check weekly and initial cost is a bit more, but once its running It's only a matter of weekly maintenance.
Thank you for the compliment!

I always look for driftwood but forget to watch for rocks. Had the wifes kia but loaded it pretty well (stupid car cant hold much weight though) and have tons left over on side of the driveway wrapped in a tarp. I got carried away when I saw there rock pile. Spent a good 2 hours poking thru it all. Gonna go again when its warmer out and rocks arent all frozen together. Wife wants to go as well, she said I looked like I had to much fun. Prolly cuz I did. I even took pictures of the rock pile when I was there. And then more pics of the rocks I brought home sitting in the driveway. lol, You should try and build a stand, that can be fun as well.

Picked up an oceanic 35g hex tank and stand. Cleaned it up and got it in the house. I'm seeding a filter cartridge for it, so there's nothing living in it. Yet.

I wouldn't worry too much. I had my 125 on an upper level with no issues.

Edit: even now there's my basement below it and its fine.
