lol the lights are the biggest cost in a reef tank but that would have been my suggestion to go, keep it and repair it. i did that with a 35g that my cousin gave me. i've had it filled in my garage since the summer and no leaks. i've gotta bring it in though before the water freezes and blows up the tank :P

Have u looked at those lights? I was thinking 3 if they are adequate. If price equals adequacy then they will be fine but unfortunatly it doesn't lol

I have 36x12" tank I have plumbed in to be ran as a fuge the water level will be just over 6" aprox 11 gallons. What should I have in there? Miracle mud, live sand/rock, various algaes(macro cheato...), pods? Suggestions on how much of each or anything different that should be added/removed?

Also what is my ultimate goal for gph thru the fuge? I know its supposed to be slow moving but how slow? I have a gate valve on the feed so I have complete control on how much flow can and will go thru it.
Thanks.
