I am really close to having tank #13 and #14 operational. This is a pic of my 125/50 gal as of now. I know that I do not have adequate filtration for the 125(aq110, marineland penguin 350, and sponge), but I am going to fire it up anyway. I will steal a quantity of media from my other tanks and let 4x 2" tin foils do the rest in the large tank. As far as the 50gal goes on the bottom, that is for my salvini, and will have a fluval c4 as a filter, and a non brand 300gph filter(questionable). I will add more filtration to both tanks soon, but I am impatient and really want to see something swimming in them.

Yes it is, and a lot of work. My plan going forward is fewer fish and larger tanks. There should be a few nice 4' tanks on the market soon in my area.

@ben, I will plan on doing that very soon.
