ok...plans are drawn for 2 125g stands. all i have to do now is build em,which could be an indefinite amount of time. i have most of my equipement picked out. the light strip on the planted tank will be a DIY unit containing 2 96W AH supply kits. also in the strip will be 4 to 6 LED lights and 2 fans...1 in, 1 out. the other tank i guess i'll just get the regular strip that comes w/ it, and swap the bulbs to actinic or something. might take some experimenting.
for filtration, the planted tank will have an eheim pro2 2128 w/ built in heater. i may put my leftover emperor on it also. i'll have to see what it does to my c02 levels, since i'm not much for topping tanks off in between water changes, and the splashing will create to much surface movement. the mbuna tank will have 4 emperor 400's, or 2 emperor 400's and an eheim wet/dry. i may also be building a fluidized bed filter into this one ,incorprated into a DIY waterfall gizmo i'm planning. probably won't happen though, as an air pump will make for a better water fall appearance.
if i end up needing c02 then i will probably buy a rexx grigg system.
