After having a Biocube 32 for 3 years, my wife and I decided to upgrade to a 120. We had the perfect spot in the house that would accommodate any size tank up to six feet. Ultimately it would come down to cost and what we could afford. We did not want to be one of those who upgraded to a 45, then 55, then 75 etc etc etc.

After doing much research and trusting the great folks at Oceans Floor here in Greenville, SC we ultimately went with the Planet Aquariums Crystaline Premium Reef 60x20 with a solid maple stand in mocha color.

Advantages of the tank:
Made is USA
Rimless and low iron glass on front panel
Upgraded Tideline sump with two 7" filter socks
External Overflow

Components of the tank we went with
Sicce Syncra 5.0 Return Pump
3ea Sicce Voyager 3 Powerheads
Bubble Magus Curve 7 Skimmer 185-240 gallons
2ea Aquatop Titanium Heaters 400 watt located in sump
2 Kessil AP700 lights on mounting arms
Deep Blue Grounding Probe
40lbs of CRS Base Rock
80lbs of live CRS Life Rock Shapes
80lbs of Caribsea Dry Sand Special Grade Reef Sand
