Tylers 26 gallon bowfront reef

Ok so I have posted a couple questions in the getting started section but I figure I will just start a common thread about my tank in general... It's a 26 gallon bowfront that is in the process of cycling it will be my first salt/reef tank I am very excited but this patience thing is killing me...

I plan on getting a 24" 4 bulb t5ho and as far as filtration I would like to go mainly Lr and water changes... This is kind of my tester tank if all goes well hopefully getting a 120g

Also currently I have a I think vinyl background on the back but it has this bubbled look to it what is the proper way to adhere it or is it just easier to paint

when I set up my planted bow I found a decent chinese 4 bulb t5ho fixture that has been reliable for the last 1 1/2 years for @ $75 on eBay

You use water with the background
Kinda similar to putting tint on a car window. Clean it really well then spray water on the glass
Stick background to it and squeegee the bubbles out
