    Update on the Aqueon 125 Ensemble. The tank has been up and running for about 3 weeks now, with a few token plants and 8 young featherfins as pioneer fishes. I'm using aragonite gravel and a single (for now) Eheim Classic 2217 filter. I plan to get some jungle val for the tank next week, then will begin to slowly move my featherfins and Xenotilapia into the 125, which will free up a 100 in my fish room, which is in the background of this photo.

    Overall, I am very pleased with the Aqueon setup. I was a little skeptical at first, mainly because the price was so reasonable ($450 complete during the holiday sale), but the Aqueon tank itself seems very well-made, with perfect seams and nicely finished edges. The three glass tops fit perfectly, are thicker than most, and have polished edges. The two LED light fixtures are nothing to write home about: with only 9 LED's each, they're not very bright, but they are fine as supplemental lighting. My main light source- a 48" Beamswork DA 6500K- fits just behind these fixtures. And finally, the stand is square and true, and nicer than I expected. So overall, I'm very pleased. I'll post another pic once the 125 is fully stocked.
