Derek's 125 gallon

This is my baby...all one hundred and twenty-five gallons worth. Just a few pics. Kinda overgrown but I like it.

Cool tank man. I've always wanted to do a big tank with rainbows in it, and then I finally got a 90gl, sans rainbows, ha. It is my Lake Malawi cichlid tank now. I still would love to do a big planted tank like yours though and let it sorta go wild.

I like the look, plus I have more to sell off this way. I also have a 190 gallon rainbow tank, which the boesemanis are soon to be in. As well as a 100 gallon african cichlid tank.

Nice tank!! but i think fish of that size could stand some room..seriously. I used to have angels and a heavily planted tank and they always seemed to have a hard time swiming in thick plants, not like rainbows or other slim bodied fish. I really do like your tank though.

100g tank:10 small angelfish, 1 harlequin rasbora, 2 albino cory, 2 clown loach, 1 rubberlip pleco, 1 bristlenose pleco and 1 apisto borellis.
Rena Filstar xp3, 2x32 and 1x96 watts with no co2.

Thanks. They actually have more room than it looks. But I will be trimming very soon.
