Tecwzrd its 24 " tall, 30" wide and 19 " in depth...I had to find the biggest tank for a area that was not all that big..so that is where the height came in...I think it will work though....lighting will most likely be the challenge

That's closer to 60 gal Is it acrylic? I assume you mean 30" long. I like that it's 19" deep. The 24" tall is only 3" taller then a standard 55 gal tank. I don't think you will need too much stronger lighting then originally planning. Something in the 300W range in either PC or VHO would be fine for medium light corals still. Due to the length you probably will have to custom build it though. Checkout hellolights.com for retro fit ideas.

I will check out that website for sure...I dont think that I need to have my light for a bit yet so that is good because it will give me time...the guy at the lfs here is fabulous..he only deals in SW so I will maybe get him to give me a hand at finding one..

Do you think that I need to put the protein skimmer on right away after my rock has cycled or should I wait for abit after?

A skimmer can wait with a light bio-load but I'd add one as soon as you can get it
