not to take over but, how happy are you with your 125 tank. im torn between a 120 - 48"x24"x24" and the 125. i like the depth of the 120 but im thinking that the 125 would have enough for a good reef. just curios. thanks, sorry, dorian

thanks all the the kind words...

dorian I like the 125 alot but wish I had gone 180... I was just going to upgrade my 55 to a 120 and after a long debate I went with a 90. (deal breaker got a tank and stand for $50)
The 120 is nice but for me it stuck too far out into the room I was going to put it in. (the wife said so)
Deep tanks are nice so its about what you want and the room you have.
My tangs like the longer tank also.. What kind of corals, fish are you looking at?

Not sure I helped much..

thanks all... The tank has come a long way sense the crash a few years ago. It means alot when others like the tank. I worked hard to get back to this stage.
I almost packed it in after the crash..
