Description: 125G community with larger cichlids is running two Marineland 360 canisters, with inline 120w HO UV sterilizer, 300w Pro Stealth heater, 2 550 Powerheads and a sweeper. One,four outlet air pump from PETCO, with adjustable output, woks great, very quite and very cheap! The lighting is a standard shop light that I painted and hung over the tank. I put some full spectrum GLO bulbs looks great! Natural 20G is heavily planted, withsome dwarf gouramis, blue rams, and other small tetras with driftwood and Eco-Complete substrate for planted aquariums. It's running a Bio-Wheel 200 and a 50w Pro Stealth heater. The lighting is a Coralife reflector fixture with 2 T5HO, GLO Life-Glo bulbs(they're awesome for the plants). Driftwood is still leaching a little, but I like the effect.
Advice: Read everything you can, do the research, learn everything you can about your pets. Its way cheaper to DIY, so it pays to be a little crafty. When in doubt? Do the water change...
Fish Kept: Cichlids mainly, a few Oscars, Dempsey, and Royal Green Terror,a roughneck Parrot and a Silver Arowana. Dwarf Gouramis, German Blue Rams and some other smaller tetras. Two Mississippi Map Turtles
Corals/Plants: Quite a few different plants in my 20, never can remember all their names...
Tank Size: 125 gallons

About Yourself: Hobbyist for over 20 years now(sickens me to be able to say that,I'm getting old, LOL) I work in the Arts field, but I just love aquatic life and the aesthetic qualities of having a slice of natures beauty indoors.
