Question on small tank

I am thinking, because of space issues, I may not set up my 55 gallon.

If you were going to set up a smaller tank, what would it be? 10, 15, 20, 20H? What is ideal for a small tank? I am thinking if I go with a smaller tank, it should be a reef.

Equipment I think is appropriate: Tank, compact flourescents, HOB protein skimmer, power head, heater, live rock, live sand, maybe HOB filter?

Anybody wanna give input? I am trying to stay small enough to fit on a small buffett.

Why not go with a Nanocube or an Aquapod? It's an all in one Reef setup and can be had for less than pieceing a tank together. A nice setup IMO and looks very sleek!

Shoot I'll sell ya mine for $100 ... 12gal Deluxe JBJ Nano, 48watts of CF light, built in fans, 3 chamber rear compartment with a Fabricated surface skimmer!
God grant me the serenity to accept the thing's I can not change, the courage to change the thing's I can and the wisdom to know the difference!
