    Default 125 african setup?

    Hey guys,

    Just wondering if a Fluval FX6 will be adequate filtration for my new 125 gallon african tank. It will house approximately 50-60 mixed from all 3 lakes. Majority being haps and peacocks with some tanganika fish and a couple from Victoria.

    I have a 65 now with 30 mixed and want to upgrade! I just want to do it right!

    Any suggestions on anything else for the tank would be great as well including media for the filter or heater(s) etc.

    Thanks for taking the time to help!

    That's a big filter and should be fine. However 50 -60 haps is a lot for a 125 as full grown adults. This also depends on the species you get. If you don't have the filter I would look at the eheim 2262. IMO Its a much better filter. Eheim classics are some of the best filters ever made

    I'll take a look at the 2262 for sure. I haven't bought the filter yet. Tossing around the idea of a sump as well. As far as the amount of fish. It should turn out to be 45 if I check off all on my list. Some are 4 inch and some are 13 when full grown. Still have some research to do on compatibility.
