The screw in bulb type lamp would be fine for a small, square tank, but for a rectangular one it would leave some shaded area on either end. The first one is plenty of light for a roughly 30" x 30" area. The first one is certainly overkill, but you can dim it down as far as you want/need to. So, I'd either go with 2 of the screw in lamps, or one of the larger units.

So, lights....check!
Now tank, I think this is a good one:

What do you think? In terms of size is it alright?
I will probably remove the top and upgrade the filter as well

Any suggestions are appreciated 😄

Awesome, so I was thinking of keeping a few cleaner shrimp and a yellow clown goby. Would I be able to also keep 2 clownfish?

I'm so excited! I can't wait to set it up! Now I just need to find a marine supplier shop so I can get my RODI water, critters and coral
