I will soon be getting rock, sand, and water within the next 4 weeks in my new 125 gallon 6ft aquarium just ordered a reef octopus regal 150sss skimmer for it. I am so excited to get it all set up, im going to try something new as far as lighting because im going to have a mixed reef with three separate islands. For the middle of the tank im going to get an AI hydra 62pro. Then for the sides two AI hydra 32 pros one for each side and im going to try and fit diffuser panels on them to see what comes of it. Cant wait to see the results as far as par spread go. Im also hype for stocking and cant wait to see the reef up and running with the fish selection that i choose. Probably going to wait 8 to 10 months before i worry about adding any coral and am going to start with softies side and work keeping my dosing up to par to maintaining them and then acclimate them to me dosing more to compensate for lps, and sps growth later on as i notice them taking more elements as they grow. As for flow i got two Ecotech Mp40s one on each side of the aquarium place on opposite sides one close to the back and the others closer to the front of the tank. Got the screen mesh for top from brs and wont have problems from jumpers. I will have to send a pic when i got it all set up and have fish/coral in the aquarium.
