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

Very nice! I love the look of the cube!

Were you unable to find a sump to fit underneath for your skimmer and stuff? I have to go with a 14g tank for my sump, silly stand is only 23 inches wide. lol

This is it filled.... No I'm doing everything hang on back... I live in an apt and was scared of the thought of my tank spilling.. Ha actually the hard to find sump for the stand did discourage me when I was considering it...

Nice rock! You might wanna point that powerhead more to the surface of the water, will help stabilize your ph.

In my 125g I also go from 7.8 to 8.0. lol I have poor air exchange in my house though so thats why mine is so low. I wouldn't add anything to the tank yet, putting in chemicals can do more harm than good sometimes. You are looking for consistency more than a "magic" number of 8.3 .
