Lighting will depend on what you plan on keeping in the tank. For FOWLR, lighting is not as important as with corals. I have heard mixed reviews on Odyssea lighting, more not so great than good. If you have an overflow, are you adding a sump/fuge? You can don't need a canister, I like them for added water volume (at least on my 125), the ability to add more LR rubble and run media if needed.
Age is relative, you are only as old as you act....of course, this works in reverse....

Questions loved, heeded advice greatly appreciated!
