    Congrats on your purchase!

    For heaters it wouldnt hurt to get the 250w pros (unless you are southern california where the heaters wont even be on much. I know you could get an inline heater heater if it matches up with tube size on the fx5 but I dont know much about them. The aqueons have a nice lifetime warranty and should be cichlid proof.

    Your filtration plans look really good too. Depending on what you stock you could probably do less even. Though I would still keep one aquaclear 110 for surface movement and ease of getting at media or adding carbon if you need to.

    I am assuming you wont have many plants with the devil so if I were you I would definately try out the light you have before you buy new. You would only have one foot on each end without light and it may spread enough for viewing. You can always upgrade later.

    thank you :) I sure am excited about getting this tank , and yea might have to get those idk i figured since i had 1 300 watt in my last 135 two 200 watts would be ok .... too scared to try a inline alot of reviews say they don't last long and fry there fish .

    no plants for me real or fake tried out fake and he had them floating within a day lol will prob be just rocks and driftwood scape with a black painted background.

    i think i may just save some cash and use the existing light plus it only uses 11 watts so that is nice

    Yes darn stands can be more than the tanks. I found a good redwood stand on e-bay once that was good priced.

    And if you don't have the proper tools, the time and cost of building a stand may not be worth it.

    lighting will be 2 36 inch beamswork LED's Or i might just try out my 48 inch led on it see how it looks ..

    i think that will cover the essentials any other suggestions or thoughts ?
    Great deal on the tank! I love my 2 AC110s on my 75 gal. I also have a Beamswork 48 in single brite LED - love it (I have artificial plants). And 2 250 watt Aqueon Pro Heaters. They keep my tank at a constant 77 degrees. Got the AC110s and the heaters at thatpetplace.com and the LED from Aqua Traders (cheapest online prices I found).
