Ok so my build has come to a screeching halt. I contacted premium Aquatics and my lighting is still on backorder from Hamilton and won't have it for at least two or three weeks. Also I found I am no where close to being computer savvy enough to setup this Neptune apex controller. Very frustrated over here

Wish I could help you out with the apex but I have never seen one let alone set one up. LOL I have seen some threads on them so I bet if you do a search under "Apex" you might find some help. Or at least someone you can ask about them. Stinks about the fixture.

Well good news is apex is up and running. I have got my powerheads set up with on off functions as well as my fugue lighting. Auto top off is now in place and adjusted. Man I wish I had my lights

Ok today was a good day for the 125. It has successfully cycled so I did a major water change to dispense of nitrates and to lower the salinity. Next I moved my lighting from my 90 gallon over so I could transfer livestock and shut the 90 gallon down. Next step acclimation. Pics on there way

Very nice. Buy, yeah, the lighting is kind of like a Pop Warner running back against an NFL Defense. LOL Going to look great though when you r lighting comes in. Cant wait to watch this one come together. By the way, what is in the cooler?

Well just as a quick 125 update. All my corals are doing very well and are coming out twice as much with the wave effect I am able to create with the Neptune controller. I only transferred my mated pair of clowns and my yellow hogfish to new tank and they are all super happy swimming in the current. All equipment running perfectly as well. I think this weekend I will pick up some chaeto for my fugue and a bottle of trigger pods. Maybe a yellow tang

I worry about led lights being enough for all the Sps I have and intend to buy. What would I look for in an led light. I know nothing about them
