Rated #98: 125 Gallons Freshwater Fish Tank

Rated #98: 125 Gallons Freshwater Fish Tank - Ive had this tank for under a year
now. I have a 125 gallon tank made
into a community tank with assorted
South African Cichlids, a Albino and
a Tiger Oscar, Afra Cichlid, Tiger
Barbs, Severums, Tire Track and a
Peacock Eel, Danio Minnows, Red Tail
Rainbow Shark, Silver Dollars,
Plecos and more...

I use a 48" T5 double ballast light,
a Fluval405 filter, Aqueon 30-60
waterfall filter.  I have Led lights
for a little extra color and a
curtain wand to keep the fish more
active.  Most of my plants are
artificial but I have 50 lbs of live
rocks in there for the new small
cichlids that were born. I have a
splitter in tank to separate Albino
Oscar since he ate a dozen of my
other cichlids in there.  I have a
little over 50 fish in there right
now. I had an addiction to buy. 
Slowing down letting it chill and
run their course.  Enjoyable little
hobby
