It's a good looking set up, let nature take it's course and it will look even better over time with more growth.

There are 16 Ikola, 16 Bulu Point and single Maswa and Kasanga. The Kasanga is very clearly playing alpha and has pretty good color already. I also have 6 Petricola in there the last couple of weeks. FX6 filter, 2 36" current usa lights along with 80 lbs of argonite, 3 texas holey rocks (120 lbs or so and about 100 lbs of Florida lace rock.

Cool mate, thanks for sharing. They'll grow so quickly in your 125. I put the 21 Mups from Andrew in my 72 gal bowfront and they are growing like grease-lightning. Enjoy!

I agree. Bigger grow out tanks equals a bit faster growth rates being the nitrates and any growth inhibiting hormones don't build up that fast. So with regular weekly water changes, tank maintenance and good food, they grow really fast.

Are you going to put them in that 75 gallon for sure Danny? The rectangular footprint is nice to have.

I think I'm gonna go for it Drew. It's hard to resist a bit of extra space & size. Better for water quality and for the fishies
Sorry John, didn't mean to hijack your thread mate

Good Idea!

You may as well get a tank like Johns! lol

It's only 2 more feet of tank on the end or 1 foot on both!

If you're hurting for room Danny you're more than welcome to set up a 180 gallon next to my 125, we have really similar taste and I'd be good with that <g>
