It all started around 10 months ago. I fell in love with the saltwater aquarium world. Then 2 months later... IT HAPPENED! My 1st tank was right around the corner. Then for my birthday i got it. I got my 12 Gallon Eclipse Cube (see tank thread in signature!). I have had many ups and downs. A whole lot more upps then downs. We lost 3 fish from ich but there was still a light to go on... The Goby/Shrimp pair! They are so amazing. Then i tried breeding two Red Banded Pistol Shrimps and again i had success at the hobby. Everything has been going great for months! A little before 2 months ago, I got the bug... the Upgrade Bug!!! I wanted a larger tank to have 10 times more corals, fish and invertabrates. Well, my Dad agreed on this and we were going to get a 90 G tank. I was extremely excited to have a large tank
1 week ago. Good friends of my Mom's called and said good friends of their's are getting rid of their 125 Gallon tank. They were giving it to us for... FREE! My Dad agreed since it was free to get it! It turns out he had a 180 Gallon and a 150 Gallon. He got overwhelmed with all the tanks. So he decided to get rid of it. Lucky me! So here i am with a free 125 Gallon!
It turns out the man that gave us the tank is a part of the Boston Reefers Association. I was going to join it when the tank was up and running so i could get discounts on rare, nice, and cool corals, fish and inverts. He told us we can get equipment like stands there. So the tank will be up sooner than expected!

It's worth it for page 100 Not just for the thread for the 125g build itself. All this waiting is going to make it incredible. All this time I've been studying up and it's almost time
We made it to pg 100. Epic. Our thread of knoweledge, hilarity, and reef is awesome
