Well I got rid of my cichlids and I'm starting my new 125g build named "Impending Doom". It is MTS substrate topped with earthworm castings and them capped with Safe T Sorb. The background isn't staying like that FYI. I'm going to experiment with diff colors once I get it setup.
The name of the tank will become apparent later. I plan on doing a dry start as well to get the foreground plants started.
