Ok..you thought you had MTS?! Come see my new 125g
Ok, I have been in the hobby now for about 5 weeks and this is my 3rd aquarium. It also happens to be my largest, what can I say I am a sucker for a good deal, I paid 350 for everything you see, and some other stuff you can not see. List includes:
- 125 gallon with lights/hood
- Heater 300w
- 2 rio water pumps
- DIY 30 gallon wet dry not the best but it works.
- HOB Emperor 280, I THINK
- Lots of bio balls
- Tons of rocks as you can see!

Thanks for the comments, I am pretty happy with the deal, the sump probably could have used some reworking but of course I was to excited about getting it going. The major downfall with this is that the sump can not be removed unless the tank is off the stand But I think it will be fine for a while.
Major motivation for this is the fact that my 2 oscars are getting picked on my the Texan in the tank, so I am sure they will love their new home.

The rigorous thing to do would have been to rework the sump and make it exactly how I want it. The major problem the partition is a bit loose so it is not water tight. I can show you a diagram of how its set up if your interested, I can draw one up quick like...

Thanks all for the comments, I think this will be our last tank for a long while! XcrossesfingersX. Anyhow, for anyone who is interested I sketched up a drawing of what my sump should look like, in theory.
This is a 30 gallon tank.

I don't mean to take over the thread, but what is a sump? I've seen it mentioned more and more. I thought at first that it was only for SW tanks. Is it for larger tanks? Like a filtering system or something?
