    I also have a 125G in the basement,it stills needs alot of work. It's supposed to have 650 watt VHO's but some of the lamps are burned out and I have to order them form hellolighs.

    Oh wow, that's beautiful! I love salt aquariums but I don't have the resources for one.

    They can get kind of costly depending on what you want. A fish only tank is alot less expensive than for corals. The initial supplies are more pricey than fresh,but I also believe that stores want you to over buy on starting supplies. If you want you can PM me and I'll give you some web pages that are alot more reasonable.

    Beautiful! I absolutely love fish, but I am restricted to bettas only here in my campus apartment. Eventually I would love to get into aquascaping and larger fish tanks!

    Your tank is beautiful. DS has a saltwater tank with live rock and such. but not much in it right now due to decreased resources. I never knew how much I'd like it until we got one. Very therapeutic.
