No if it a preset up tank that's a sweet deal. The only thing is there aren't that many cool predator fish you can put in a 56 gallon. I am thinking of setting up 110 fowlr but I am not sure yet because I really like reef safe fish they have better colors.

I've thought about that, but As far as a FOWLR goes, this is as big as I can go. My other option is 35 gallons. I live in an apt so my options are limited. It is already set up and I've done business with this guy before.

It's a deal Imo. Trade the damsels in at the lfs for some store credits. You could sell the lights if you don't need them and buy a taotronics led fixture and make it a frag tank. Just an idea.

I don't know know that I've actually seen the tank I don't think its that great of a deal. But if you wanna fix it up a little it probably has some potential

Cool

I think I have too many things that I need to do for this tank before I start investing in something like that. When this one is a little more established maybe I'll do something similar. Thank you guys for your input!

Jmay... Do you have a sump? If so I suggest putting your heater in the sump for look and more room for rock/ coral. Not bit picking you but someone once suggested it to me the same way and I never was more happier after performing a free "upgrade".

I do not have a sump. I can't have one. I want one though. My tank isn't drilled and I can't have the liability of an overflow issue. Lol. I'm working on something for the heaters though. I hate the way they look.

Your tank doesn't need to be drilled. Plus there are several ways to prevent an over flow. If the power goes out at my house its not an issue. All the water in my overflow box runs and sits in my sump. Once the power kicks back on the pump puts the water bank into the tank until it get into the overflow box and it just basically goes back to running.
