    Here i will post all my progress on my 125 mbuna tank. First step buy the tank lol.

    Just curious why you can't get a sump or canister for it? ( per another thread )

  3. LiterallyHydroWell Known MemberMember

    Just a guess, but the stand probably isn't designed to have a lot of space under it.

    Good luck with your setup!

    There 0 room under the tank so I can't place a canister in it so I'm stuck with hobs. Thanx hydro

    I've yet to lose my 100+ gallons virginity.. ;D I hope to set up a 6' or larger tank in the future. Where are you getting your tank from? Craigslist? New?
  6. LeoDiazFishlore VIPMember

    From fb group or CL I'm not rich to afford new lol.
  7. LeoDiazFishlore VIPMember

    For heating and filtration im going to go with 3 aquaclears 110 and 2 aqueon pro 250watt heaters. Lighting will be the same as my 75 a beamswork led just the 72in version. Sand still deciding in black diamonds or PFS. And for the background same problems black or dark blue.

    Well took long but got rid of a tank now have have money for the 125g. Now that I have money all the goods deals on CL are gone... :mad:
  9. LiterallyHydroWell Known MemberMember

    Ha! It always seems to happen that way. Be patient young grasshopper, and a good deal will come its way. ;D
  10. LeoDiazFishlore VIPMember

    Lol, yep is always when your looking for something that all the good deals disappear. What I find funny some people are asking for a used tank more then a new one... Some guy wanted $325 just for the tank, LFS sells them for $270.
  11. LiterallyHydroWell Known MemberMember

    Wow.. That's silly. The LFS I work for is selling a 180 drilled with two overflows right now for $600 for tank stand and canopy. If I had the money I'd be all over that thing.
  12. LeoDiazFishlore VIPMember

    Well guess wat someone has a new(to me) 125g tank, got for $100. Will clean it up and give it a spray job.
  13. LiterallyHydroWell Known MemberMember

    Nice! That's a pretty good deal. I'm kind of jealous, actually.
  14. LeoDiazFishlore VIPMember

    Lol, the guy selling it was a nice guy wasted like hour just talking with him.
  15. LeoDiazFishlore VIPMember

    Well.... I'm going to sell this 125 and just get a new 125g. I was talking to my dad and we just decided to get a new 125g I'll go a little over budget but I'll just sell something else to make it. also I have more money now because I sold my 75g.

    Why did you decide on new?
  17. LeoDiazFishlore VIPMember

    Just to be sure it would last us and know is a new tank, because I'm pretty sure I can't upgrade after the 125g.
  18. LeoDiazFishlore VIPMember

    Waiting for my 2 aqueon pro heaters, and for another aquaclear 110 have one I bought already. Once I sell this 125g will go right away to buy the new one.
  19. LeoDiazFishlore VIPMember

    Going for my new 125g, yes.
