May be setting up a new tank...opinions please!
Hi all - It's been a while since I was on. I had a 29 gallon that I was using as a neon tank, but I have since moved up to a 60 gallon tank so I could increase school sizes, etc....should have started big in the first place.
Speaking of big...I have the opportunity to score a nice 125 gallon tank which is making me want to go back to my roots and have a nice goldfish tank in which I'd like to have about 6 fancy goldies (probably 2 each black moors, orandas, and lionheads).
It's been a while since I set up a goldfish tank, so there are many new filters out there than what I used to use before. My question is this: if I were to get a 125 gallon setup with the anticipated stock of 6 fancy goldfish...what should I be looking at as far as filtration goes?
I'm currently looking at a Fluval FX5 canister filter, rated for tanks up to 400 gallons and I'd like to get a good HOB filter so I can have two good filters running at the same time. I don't have any real experience with large HOB filters though...do any of you have any recommedations that I should look into? Does this sound like a good setup considering the size and my stocking preference?
Feel free to give me your thoughts and opinions. I'm in no hurry with this one. I'm going to take my time and do it right. Thanks!
