    I have a 60g FO that's been up and running for 2 years. Doing good but I let the wife pick fish that won't fit in there. Just bought the 125 with I think a 30g fuge. It's a used tank from my fish dealer. I'm just a few steps above a clueless beginner in reef tanks. What should I expect? I will look to move fish over when it's up and running and hope I don't fail miserably. Help needed

    Hi and Welcome to 3reef.

    How do you intend to cycle the new tank?

    Are you able to setup the 125 and still leave the 60 running? This will make the move a lot easier if you can.

    If not. Make the 60gal into a sump!
