almost or above $500 for just the aquarium?! Wow, I'd personally invest in coral, fish, and other equipment and find a good craigslist deal or have a standard 90 gallon or something instead. I use the Aquamedic Skimmer for my 70 and it does a nice job. Wouldn't recommend getting crushed coral for substrate as it traps nitrates. What about the rock? Looks like a good list of equipment though.

Oh awesome! What a great resource. If you're willing to buy the aquarium for that much then by all means do! I love cubes too, but I also like to not be broke

You are going to need more than 1 Radion fixture. I have 1 over a 54, and the corners are darker than the rest. I accommodate mushrooms their. Honestly, 2 should do it.

Radions are supposed to light a 24x24 area, so I am pushing it with my 54 corner. Depends what you want to stock?? Sps, definitely 2. Softies, could get away with 1. Maybe look for a less expensive fixture?

Rosesrblu1, do you have them on 100%? Almost everyone I've seen who has dimmable LEDs has had them only 50% on b/c they'll burn even their SPS. Hopefully someone else can step in and confirm whether or not you need 2.
