125 Gallon FOWLR First Tank


Reefing newb
Hey guys, I'm finally posting my first (REAL) Saltwater tank setup. I was on the site almost two years ago posting questions about the issues I had when I very unwisely purchased a tank already set up on Craigslist. That tank was 30 gallons, and being a total noob to the hobby it ended in disaster. Fast forward a year and a couple months, I bought my first home and had a room with no good ideas to use for. Then I saw the tank in a pet shop and new it would be perfect for said room and I once again desired to to get back into the hobby. Still very knew to the hobby but seasoned in it's difficulties I pursued countless hours of research from great forums like this and others on the internet. My tank is now 8 months old and is full of life! I hope you enjoy the pictures! Any feedback is appreciated!125 Gallon 72x18x24 FOWLR Glass (not drilled) tank
