again, beautiful tank!

but could you tell me why you changed your inside the tank plumbing to the PVC? And why you moved the PVC output around from side to side?

I have a 125g that i am trying to get a grip on the plumbing myself.

thx

When I added the canopy, the only opening is now on the back left side of the tank by the overflow box. I moved the plumbing to the left side back corner to accommodate the hood.

Changing the water flow in the tank was not a problem as I also repositioned the koralias inside the tank. The water circulation is now a circle pattern.

The plumbing inside the tank has always been pvc.

Since adjusting your sump configuration, how often are you having to refill your 20# co2 tank?

I refill it every 60 days or so. The tank and regulator is now feeding 3 different tanks, the 155 and 2-30 grow out tanks so my consumption is up.

How are the glowlight tetras? They contrast well with the cardinals! I was thinking of getting some.

They are some of the hardiest fish that I have had. Had them for going on 2 years now. Wanted to add some red color to the tank
