    I'm so excited, decided to get rid of some dust collectors (elliptical & stair climber) and will soon have room for a 120 gallon or more tank. I haven't been this excited since I was a kid :). I can't wait to start researching and gathering all the info from this community on the best type of sand to use (have only ever used gravel) and the type of filtration and lighting I will need for that size of tank. And the fish...whohooo!!!!! Totally into fish that school so I really want to have several LARGE schools of brightly colored beauties. And the next best part...using the current 45 gallon high for Angel fish if possible.

    I saw on the website that you can order something called "starphire glass". Does anyone have experience with this? I'm asking because, one of my areas locally owned fish stores has some really good pricing on 120 gallon tanks (regular glass) so I wasn't sure if ordering this type of glass on a tank really made a difference.

    Really, I couldn't wipe the smile off my face if I tried. Thanks so much to this forum for giving me the confidence to think I could even try this and to those whose journals I've read that have really inspired me to create not only beautiful but healthy environments for my fish. Happy dance!!!

    Congrats on getting a new tank

    I looked into the starphire glass when getting my 180 made. I did not notice a big enough difference to pay the extra cost
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.
