    Smitty's Big Reef (125 Gal)

    Good evening Chicagoreefs family..... sorry I've been kinda m.i.a. lately. Between work, taking care of my mother, and settling in to the new home we bought, I've finally found time to upgrade my 60 gal cube to a bigger tank. I bought a125 gal tank, and started plumbing it yesterday.

    Because this tank is in my family room, and on hardwood floors, I wanted to put the sump and other filtration in the next room over, which is the laundry/ mud room.

    The wife didn't mind me drilling holes in the wall.... it's a nice clean look..... plus, I'll cover that corner up with a large plant or something.
    Here's the wall where the filtration will be. On the other side of the room is the washer, laundry tub and my ro unit.

    Yep, they go to the next room over, which is the laundry room. Nothing but space and opportunity in there.

    Gonna keep it a nice mixed reef Madjoe, still deciding how I wanna aqua scape it. I've been thinking of doing 3 islands, and the middle island having a cluster of various sps's.
