Ya that tread almost made me order a nuvo, and I've never been a fan of AIO's. And no I would never use crushed coral, mainly because it promotes the destruction if natural reefs which kinda makes the hobby look bad, not to mention that it traps detritus. Most of the black aragonite is pretty heavy sand IME or just a heavier of what ever color you choose

I'm not sure. I might have do another Nuvo - I knew I should have kept at least one - but I don't like them.

Just looked and they're not acrylic. I think I'm going to stick with the seaclear

Possible mantis tank...

Nuvo I have is glass with some plastic bits that make up the overflow and sump area. It's a very nice tank. I seriously doubt a Mantis can smash it. And if there was an outside chance it could it think it would be the bottom. A pretty thin sheet of egg crate or acrylic under the sand bed should eliminate any possible breakage of the bottom. The stories you hear are usually about smaller tanks made of much thinner material than a Nuvo.

That's a nice tank. I think I wanna go cheaper. The mantis doesn't need an extravagant setup. Lol. He doesn't care what his tank looks like as long as he has stuff to kill.

Why must you make me dream of another build when I'm not done the one I'm currently on, on that note for a tank like this I really like the dimensions of a 33 gallon long, same footprint as a 55 just shorter
