On the very post before this you are asking what a cool first snake is.. Then on this post, you claim to have had snakes before, and now want a "big" one. To me, it sounds like you need to do A LOT of research. You say you breed mice and rats, well "big" snakes grow up to eat rabbits. Can you afford a rabbit once every two weeks or so? Also, a 125 gallon aquarium will not house a "big" snake. These snakes need huge enclosures, almost room sized, to be comfortable.
My advice: if you find a snake you want to get, make sure you do tons and tons of research... buy books, talk to people with experience, and just read and research as much as you can BEFORE getting one. You need to know about things like husbandry, temperament, behaviour, size, what food it eats, etc... And, if you've never had a snake before, which is what I get from your last post, do NOT start with a "big" snake!!!!

:whats the biggest type/breed of snake besides an anaconda i heard they are pretty mean
