While I'm building the stand for my new 125 gallon I'm researching the rest of the equipment . it will be a FW
community and maybe if I'm brave a discus tank.
The tank came with aquaclear sump (no media though). I am debating whether to use that or have a custom sump inside 30gal I have laying around. Pluses to a custom sump I see is more water capacity and perhaps room for more plants. I'm also not sure if I can house a heater in the acrylic aquaclear. Which one would you use?
And I'm stuck in the debating loop as far as pump. Will the Eihem compact 3000 provide enough flow at 4ft head for 125tank or do I have to spring up extra cash for 5000 and throttle some flow ?
Thank you !
