Hi guys! Figured I would start a journal for this tank, since moving to a new house, new job I have both the space and a little more disposable income for a bigger tank (previous biggest was a 20g long). Not sparing much expense with this one, though am still doing DIY as much as I can. The tank...
This thread is going to be both a place for me to organize my thoughts about the planning and setup of this tank, and then once I have all the pieces it will become a journal of the build and hopefully long, lush life of this tank.
For this tank we have 2 goals:

I have a 125 DENSELY planted dirt tank, inverts, and fish with beautiful specs. I noticed some white spots on one of this fish. Immediately started the temp up to 86 and dosed with Paragard. It doesn't seem to be working. As five days later my Bosemani looks like he and is girlfriend have been...

I would love to know everyone's...
