150 lbs. would give you a 2 inch layer of sand. I think they only sell them by the 100 lb. bags so I would just get two so you can have extra on hand.

Haha, more lifting indeed. Then you have to carry into your house the cleaned out buckets of sand. I had an 80 gallon and my dad and I struggled with the tank and the stand. I couldnt imagine a 125 gallon. :eek: Wow

ya i agreee with 200 lbs

i have 100 lbs in my 90 gallon am going to put another 50lbs just to make some parts a little deeper!

good luck, i love how the sand looks and the fish seem way happier but my tank took about a week to fully clear up, i washed it the same way that the sticky in this forum told me!

I'm going to suggest the opposite. I'd start with 100 lbs and see if it looks like enough. I have about 60 lbs in my 75 gallon and wish I had put less in. More sand=more area for pockets to build up and more need to churn it.
