Glass hoods. 3 strip lights. 2 200 watt heaters. Either 2 canister filters. Or one canister and one trickle filter and surface skimmer. About 75 pounds of gravel. Backing. powerhead or air pump. And use some biospira or biozyme. To get your tank cycled fast.

AC 802 Powerhead w/ prefilter on one side pointed towards the other, AC 500 on the opposite side to help out the dead spot, FilStar XP3 or Eheim 2229 for filteration help, two 250 watt heaters, and two thermometers on each side to check temperature balance.

Don't forget piranha's


Basically, what you need is the same as when you're setting up a 125g comunity tank, only with a lot more filtration (ideally at least 10x tank content as turnover per hour), a powerhead, and less light.

i have a 120gal and i use only 1 350 watt heater with temp control and only 50 pounds of gravel but a 125 is longer so probly more gravel but the temp balance is fine with that heater

for my filter i use a aqua clear 500
i also have a 901 powerhead but dont use it all the time

for the most part i agree with Judazzz
