I was waiting for someone with some large tank experience to field this one, but I guess I can give it a shot. When it comes to filtration for a tank that big, your either gonna have something very huge on top of the tank, some "big thing going on underneath" it, or several smaller things on top. One thing I can say is don't cut costs on the filtration. If you can somehow scratch out the money for that better filter, get it. To your second point, a 125 gallon tank is big enough to house pretty much any fish your heart desires. In the drop down menu at the top of this page there is an option that says "tools". One of the tools is a compatibility chart, so whichever fish you want, check the chart to see if they'll get along. Finally, when buying a used tank, just go on craigslist and see the best deals in your area. The best deal could be $250, or $500 or $50, but no matter what they'll certainly be cheaper then buying new. Remember, you can always not buy the tank if you show up at the guys house and the tank is in shitty condition. Hope all this helps!
