Welcome Aboard, Thanks For joining me. This build thread is being done while the tank is already full and the upgrades ( corrections ) are being planned and squeezed into a already busy work and maintenance schedule. While shopping online during the Black Friday madness I stumbled into the Pet Smart site only to see a 125 Gallon aquarium and stand for $250 ( some crazy price ? ) and I seen 50% OFF ALL AQUARIUMS !......and I bit hook line and sinking, ( no not a typo ) so i started shopping and spending thinking "I did this before, I can do it on the cheap! " WRONG! and all this is after a 10 plus years hiatus from reefkeeping . Its been a fast ride to catch-up with the equipment, suppliers, and the new techniques and practices, or example a wet/dry was a must when I last had a tank, refugiums were gaining but still radical or a novelty, now it seems the norm and lighting is an entirely different MONSTER altogether. So for 2 months while i waited for my tank to come in I researched the hobby, materials & equipment. For several years I have seen the counter type bio-cubes and all in ones and told myself "that's the ticket" I even once pointed them out to my wife and she said "OK BUT THAT TYPE!" honest she did! I have made a ton of rookie mistakes and I may point them out but most of you won't need the help.
