nice. i just ordered a 125g myslef.  only thing i can say about that light is, your electrical bill be be higher, because you will need a window a/c unit to keep your room below 120 degrees!

And there is just enough room in my sump section to lift up my collection cup and turn it on its side so i can clean it and stick my hand into the chamber section and wipe off any build up :)

And tim apparently to run my light it will cost 8 and half cent a hour lol! my father had a guy he knows figure it up Oo and apparently i cant run the light and my tv at the same time unless i have my window open atm due to the heat my tv puts off and the light which is awesome so i dont need a heater in my room! and im not sure how this summer will work lol!

I'm sure it will all work out in the end Daniel. If all else fail I guess a A/C window unit might be needed. But we dont havve much longer till the warm weather returns.  I  would like to know how your dad's friend figured that out. I knnow there is a formula just dont know what it is. Hopefully  my 125g will be up and running soon.  Then all I have to do is get rid of the 75g stuff.
