So the curve 7 is here and assembled. Time for some serious skimming.

On another note, I finished plumbing both sumps and tanks together. All parameters are good and everything looks happy. Now just need to deal with the mess of wires and add sand to the 40 if I can find any locally that I like. I was thinking about going with black sand to make anything I add pop in color even more.

I like white sand for it's reflectivity. Every bit of light helps.

I had thought about white but I wasn't sure how I would like it. As for lighting; I don't think it will be a problem, the fixture over the tank is a 14 k 250 de Phoenix and 4 t-5 (2 aqua blue plus and 2 aqua blue special).

I am looking at this for my 90, you will have to let us know how it works so I can see if it is enough for my tank.

It should be more than enough for a 90. It's been in a little over 12 hours and its already starting to pull stuff out. So far I am impressed.

So a small update: the new skimmer has been in for a week and all I can say is wow. It's extremely quiet and works really well, I've had to empty the cup once already and will probably need to again before the weekend is over.
I also added sand to the 40 and once the lights turn on in the morning I will post some pics.

Now I just need some ideas for livestock. I was thinking a pistol/goby pair but other than that I'm not sure. Would love to hear some ideas from everyone.
