New tank!
After months of patiently watching craigslist for a good deal on a 125 gallon tank, I finally got it! $300 for the tank, stand, glass tops and lights. Now begins the final stage of tank moving to make room for it. I've gotten rid of all the "smaller" tanks, and just have to break down and store the 55. I have to set up a double stand in the guest room to accommodate the quarantine tank below the 55, then I have to move the 90 from the living room to the kitchen where the 55 currently resides. THEN, I can bring the new 125 into the living room. This time, however, I am going to do the background BEFORE I set up the tank :-)

Haven't really decided what to put in it yet.....

im anxious to see the stock list, plan on plants in this one?

hahahah, no plants. I might do something fun with the ridiculous amounts of java moss I have, though.

So what songs play during 'musical tanks'? ;-)

In this Moment - she sure can scream :-)

The 29 that was in the closet is set up, with the 20 long QT below it. The 55 and stand are now in the closet. Time to drain the 90 and move it to the kitchen.

You already know I'm super excited for you! (and yeah, I gotta admit, it *IS* always entertaining to 'watch' you juggle tanks) Great deal on all included. . . One of these days you're going to have to give in to the pressure and start a planted tank! Since that won't be today, I'll happily content myself to wonder how big that GORGEOUS hunk of Java will be allowed to grow in a 125g!

Please keep this thread updated with your progress! I can't wait to see this one grow! (and would really like to 'watch' you do a backround on your 125 before I attempt it on mine, lol!)

Hahaha, the java moss isn't going to get bigger than the one in the other 125 ;-)

As for juggling, I do it all myself. I have a friend coming over to help bring in the new tank though. I'm glad the 55 fit in the closet - I didn't want to put it up in the attic. My place is a MESS though. It really looks like a bomb went off, but once things are where they need to be it will all clear up. I'm going to have to get a bigger TV to put on the wall - it's going to look small above the 6 foot tank....

"I think we need a bigger boat."

I say who needs a tv when you have a 6 foot tank. I'm actually working on a way to HIDE my TV, so the tank can take over the room!

How long does it take your moss to grow? Don't make me send it back. . . *giggle*
