New Fluval 125

I got my new Fluval Roma 125L yesterday and finally got it built and setup today. I'll be doing a fish-less cycle and have added 2.5ml of 25% NH3(aq) into the water to bring it up to 5ppm.

There is a lot of debate whether adding bacteria actually works or not, but since I've used this previously with good results I've used it again.

I'm unsure what substrate to use. I'm very tempted to have sand in this aquarium but I'm not sure how easy it is to clean. I imagine using a standard gravel cleaner will suck the sand up.

I'll add some more photos once I've got the substrate and decor in.
