I'm slowly trying to build me a stash acount just for my saltwater addiction
Lmfao I'm joint on hers so she can cut me off at any moment lol no but I've been thinking about it for a while now, either keep one and sell the other, or sell both and get me a 72g bow front to match my 36g bow front or really bite the bullet and get a 155g reef ready bow front I don't know yet but the 72g would be pretty cool actually.

Bow fronts are so much harder to clean. I'm about ready to buy a 6ft 125 for $110. Tank only. Going to help a friend out

Just keep in mind the cost of maintenance on a large aquarium. If you build another tank I highly HIGHLY recommend getting a RODI filter system for top offs and mixing of your own SW. Makes life much easier and is cheaper in the long run. Also i wouldn't trust anyone to make my water for me lol I keep my filters changed out and if its not showing 0 TDS it doesn't enter my systems and goes down the drain

But I use a magfloat on my 36g bow front now with minor issues I just have to probably do twice the scrubbing on the front glass but oh well just a thought lol I'm kinda tired of 4ft flat tanks if someone made a 5ft that would be awesome but the next one up is a 125g and I definitely think I'm not ready for that size of tank at all yet.

Yes most of them comes with an adaptor for the faucet and under the sink.

Yes as long as your faucet has a threaded spout you can do it that way. They even make fitting adapters for a garden hose.
