Welcome to a Photo Tour of my 125g tank. After being in the hobby for 17 months now I finally feel like I am getting the hang of some of the things. My first tank was a 75g + 15G internal sump tank. We buffed the scratches out of the tank and then drilled the acrylic for a refugium in the stand. That tank was running for about 8 months when I received this 125g free from a very good friend who moved to California. The only way I have been able to afford this hobby on a college student's budget is by several very generous donations and help from others. I set up the 125g for 4 months, then moved to my current location (has been running here in South ATX since June).

I was unsatisfied with the stand that came with the 125g. It was old and worn out and I had worries of it's structural soundness. I took a glass crate from one of the construction sites I was working at as an intership. With some slight modifications and a 8'x2'X1" piece of plywood I had my oversized stand. This allows some space around all sides of the tank and a work area and place for my ballast beside it.

The canopy that came with the tank needs some work but it gets the job done.
