So I have found a pretty good deal on a 120G. My only concern is its the short 120. (48 1/2 x 24 1/4 x 25 1/2). I am wanting to do a 120 for a peacock and hap tank. Would this one work or do I really need to wait for a 120G long?
Well, I picked up the tank this weekend. I ended up reinforcing the stand as it just didnt seem to be very sturdy for a tank that would end up being 1400 lbs. Was kicking the idea around of what filter to go with. I originally was going to go with 2 Eheim 2217s as I really like the one I have on my 55. That changed today when I stopped by Petsmart to grab some mealworms for another pet and noticed they had the Fluval FX6 on sale for $229. Score!!! So this afternoon I got the back panel of the tank painted, got 150 lbs of pool filter sand cleaned up as best I could and got her all hooked up and running to get the water all dialed in and start a fishless cycle tomorrow. So stoked on how little I will have spent on this setup thus far. Now time to spend some time planning on a fish list of Peacocks and Haps for this tank. Already have a pair of small Venustus and a pair of juvenile Regal Blues growing out in the 55.
