The Refugium is up to you...it helps as another type of filtering and also adds water volume. I don't feel that other filters are needed in a sw tank ( meaning the hob fw type mechanical filters).

Yes Ro/di Should be a high priority as well.

Check out liveaquaria.com and look up fish there. It'll tell you the tank size requirement for each type of fish. The nano section will help you, but some for a 40g will be in the regular section too.

they're pretty easy to customize. You can do sponge, ceramic rings, LR, chaeto, purigen, Chemipure, or any combination of those things. It's really up to you. The ac filters just have an open space. I use the sponge, ceramic rings and chemipure in mine on my 30g FOWLR. Then in my 55g reef, I use an AC as a hob fuge, there are some threads about doing that in the DIY section.
