My 180g came with a 40b sump. I would say the bigger the better, see which one will fit under the stand. If you are going to do a refugium then you will need bigger than I have.
Does it come with a skimmer and sump setup already? Or are you just buying the tanks?
Cause keep in mind the skimmer will be a beast for this size tank and the sump will need to fit it....I have an incredible amount of room in mine for it only being a 40 breeder lol

Nice!! Grats!! I really love the 180g footprint, so much more room to rockscape, youre gonna love it!

How are you drilling it? Two sets of holes on each side or a single center overflow?

For what it's worth, make sure and use corner overflows

You have to set the program first and then dial in the intensity. If you take a photo i can tell if its a second gen or first gen controller. There is more functionality with the second gen ones.... Would need to know which gen to advise you more specifically.

I recently bought a bullet goby and a new tang, a medium large one that is related to a mustard tang, dont know much more than that unfortunately. lol
