controller recommendations?

Working on a new 125 gallon setup w/sump. I'm leaning toward using a controller of some sort.

Originally I was just going to use one of those finnex temp controllers and a simple timer for...

That's a possibility but I'm not sure how you'd integrate an ATS in the space.

Since a 29 is really smaller than I wanted to go. I'm planning on reinforcing the floor to hold a bigger tank. ...

after looking over the floor of the inside of the stand I'm not comfortable with it supporting a 55. My fallback is a 29 gallon I have lying around.

I'll be using an ATO so water level stability won't be an issue.

Wisteria will grow in my tap water. Not sure how it'll like this setup once it's buffered up to Malawian levels.

Thanks for the reply. After doing some more searching in the favorite bulbs people with T5's are using over peacock tanks, I'm leaning toward the fish focus blue.

55 gallon sump design?

So I just picked up a used 125 that I'm going to setup for a harem of peacocks(probably otter point jakes). My plan at this point is to setup my old 55 as a sump.

I'm looking for some suggestions...

best spectrum ?

Planning a 125 gallon rock/sand scape for a Aulonocara jacobfreibergi harem and a large school of Lake Inle Danios.

While it will have some plants it's going to be a rock dominated layout.

Generally one big school of a single species will look the best. Tank size does make a difference though. As Betta132 mentioned two schools that stay separate can look great. I think once you get...

125 gallon lighting

Just picked up a used 125 to replace my 55. The plan at the moment is for a harem of 5 jakes and a school of a dozen or so Lake Inle Danios as primary fish.

I want to focus mostly on the...

Well floaters have access to atmospheric CO2 and so aren't limited by it's availability like fully aquatic plants are(partly at least why they can multiply so quickly).

All crayfish are opportunistic feeders, even CPO's. The problem in your setup is the cories and the CPO occupy the same part of the tank, increasing the likelihood of them being in close proximity. ...

My Aquaclears are usually almost completely silent. Is it just the cover rattling or the impeller? Usually if one starts making noise a thorough cleaning gets them back in order for me.
