Just wanted everyone to know that we keep fish and plants in Utah as well. About to set up a 120 size tank for discus and plants, with CO2, ferts, amazonia and all the fun stuff. Thinking about either a Tek or ATI 8-bulb, I know, alot of light, but 1 or 2 could always be actinics. Already have a 75G planted as well as two little 24G nanos for saltwater, But now the discus bug has bitten me and we have a local dealer who has these, none of the LFS sell discus, but after seeing UtahDiscus, I now have to have them......thank you for allowing me to post here.........jeff:)

Welcome,

If you haven't yet, be sure to check out NACU (Nature Aquarium Club of Utah, www.natureaquariumclubofutah.com. We have a discussion forum at www.utahaquatics.com

Tek lights are great. They're sleak and very efficient. You may want to check out metal halides too. www.fishneedit.com has great prices on metal halide fixtures, and they come highly recommended too. If i hadn't spent soo much money on my TEK fixture , i would've just gotten halides from them, especially since it looks like they have combo T5HO/MH fixtures.

Welcome to APC. I second the recommendation to check out the NACU group which is based in the SLC area. The group of guys there are great and will be able to help you with just about any questions or problems that you encounter. They also meet regularly to exchange ideas, plants, and to show of their efforts.

Hey Texgal, just got through with the 34 or so pages of your 125 set-up, must have been some fun, so I guess you advise against Amazonia II and just stick with the regualr Amazonia? How much of it did you use, as my tank will be a 120 but 48x24x24, I really like the different plants you use, are there are updated pics of this tank?........thanks everyone for the welcome...........
