Oceanic sump model 2, is it big enough for a 125 gallon FO?

I can get my hands on one fairly cheap, but I can't find anywhere that tells what size tank it is good up to, a 'fish only' tank, using the bio balls that come with it. It holds 2 gallons of bio balls. Anyone know?

Well, according to this site:

http://www.shermantankcompany.com/oceanic/sump.html

the model two is good for tanks up to 175 gallons.

Looks good. Have you though about filter media and a return pump?

I was just planning on using bio-balls. I've got a 950 gph pump already I'll use.

May want to look into using LR rubble instead. Less trouble with NO3 down the road and a better biological filter media
