just remember the tanks one of the cheaper purchases ( more flow needed, more rock, bigger skimmer ) but regardless nice find. tanks will come and go, so remember plan things out!

So would everything still be the same for the 125 as stated for the 55? Basically just a lot of GPH jets and big protein skimmer? And big lights?

more rock, more sand, bigger water changes, so alot more cost but the plus side is the more water volume the more stable the tank lol. you have to consider the electric bill in costs too, with 10 things plugged in it can add up.

it really depends on exactly what your running. from your lights to what pumps, they all are rated different watts. heck, it matters what kind of refridgerator you have plugged in because that will be on your electric bill as well..

T-5 will work, just not the same ones you were looking at for the smaller tank. When I had a 125, I used 2-4 lamp fixtures. Until I moved to Halides.
