The back compartment is good for hiding equipment like protein skimmer, heater,etc.

Never had one of these, but the light looks sufficient.

While those system set-ups are slick looking and convenient, I can't help but think you could get a lot more for $1,000 buying individual components and putting together a system yourself.
sadly like everything else, branding has infiltrated the fish hobby and about $150-$200 of that price is branding.

Thanks that's really good to know. It's just hard to get started buying individual parts when I know nothing about them. If I had a list of everything to buy brands and how to set them up I would be down completely

What are all the individual items I would need to buy? I have connections and can get everything at cost so I'm not really trying to go craigslist when I can get it cheap new.

If you don't know what equipment is required for a basic setup, you probably need to do some more research before starting this project.
