I have aquaclears, but I will be putting canisters on the 40b and saltwater for peace of mind. Will keep the aquaclears for BB and hospital seeding

I think canisters are not preferred because they can become nitrate factories? Am I remembering right?

That is true if they are not properly maintained.

Carey, what AC HOB would recommend for a 20 gallon without a sump? Minimum 50? 70/110?

I would go with the 50 minimum. I have the 70 on my 20L and it's quite the flow of water! LOL

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

So I suppose I could do that that on one end, and a nano PH on the other?
Or would a PH at both ends, and filter in the center work best?

I wouldnt go crazy, a filter on one side and a PH on the other would be fine in my opinion.

Wool! Saves me a bit of $$$!!!
I am definitely thinking a pair of black ocillarus for this tank, and maybe and invert or two after it's well established. Nothing crazy.
And MAYBe some corals, but probably just the live rock algae to start
