It's a long story, but the end result is that Franklin got another new tank. I'll post more pics and upgrades that I have done since setting it up. Thanks for looking.

Thanks Steve,
It's a 72" 125 gallon tank with driftwood from Alaska, (my weak link replaced) an Aqueon 300 heaterand organically grown Water Hyacinth from Pennsylvania. He was scared of the Hyacinth at first but he now loves to explore and play in it.

Are you going to raise the water level? You're going to get a lot of stains (from waste, skin, minerals, etc) and it'll show up on the glass.

Steve,
I wasn't planning on increasing the water height due to weight. That tank full will weigh close to 1250 lbs without rock, stand etc. As far as stains, a quick scrub will take care of that. What are your thoughts?

It's been awhile since I considered the weight issue but there are ways to add support. Obviously you want to keep things as safe as possible but I would make sure if it is something you can or can't do. A 125 gallon tank should be very doable.
