I am upgrading to a 125 gallon tank. I am planning on installing it in the wall like Jim's.

I wanted to reply to an older thread and hit post a new thread instead of reply so that is why it may seem strange that I started this thread. BloopBloop asked me why I was selling my 72 gallon and that was my response to her. I can't believe I am going to go through with this. It could potentially be a real head ache.
Let me know if you have any ideas. I plan to put it in the wall like Jim's tank. I am always looking for suggestions

do you already have rock?

When your upgrade is complete I believe you will see the benefits of a larger tank as it has been explained to me.
The 72 was just so pretty! I am sure Mongo Tank will be just as nice, if not better!
bzzzz... if you need green star polyps... ~beats a dead horse~

Thanks Bloop, Nick I do not have rock yet. I want to added to what I have but also wants some for a 50 gallon sump for extra filtration.

Just my opinion - I'd get the rock first - put it in some cheap containers cycling w/ a powerhead and heater (cooking would be ideal; cooking = cycling w/o light to establish a strong bacterial and not algae base for nutrient uptake) so that when you do get set-up the tank, everything will be ready to go. At least it will cut down on the time you have to wait for the cycle to complete once you get the tank up and going.
It's a good way to get cheap rock from other hobbiests (covered with nasty caulerpa, or aiptasia anemones) - cook it to eliminate the bad stuff - and then use it in your tank - better than cycled rock from the store. The only downfall is that *ideally* you will want 2 months to cook it - but any amount of pre-cycling that you can do w/ it will help out down the road.
