I use te fluval 404 on my tank but only for the added water volume and circulation. I took out the foam because it just holds the junk and acts as a nitrate factory.

You can use the cannister and HOB w/o media just for flow, and then depend on the LS you have, the LR you're planning to get, and a skimmer for your filtration. You can put LR rubble in the HOB for that extra bit of filtration.

It is a 48 inch odyssea. It sells in stores around here for $300 but i got it on e-bay, brand new with bulbs, a moonlight kit, legs, and two cooling fans for $122

How do you like it, is it decent construction? Have you had any problems with it yet? That's the one I want to buy (waiting on some back pay) but I'm just hesitant as it's about 100 dollars cheaper than all the competition for PC 260 watts (coralife, orbit...)

I have read mixed reviews on this light. Some like it others hate it. The biggest trouble seems to be in the company's customer service. If something goes wrong they are of no help (so I have read).

I really like it especially for the price. It seems to be constructed well. I also really like the fact that it has three switches, 1 for the two 12,000k daylight bulbs, 1 for the two actinic bulbs, and 1 for the four moonlights.

Something to keep in mind regarding the filters is if you don't have a sump the canister will provide a place to add media like GAC or some floss every now and then to polish the water. Running GAC is recommended b/c corals, especially soft corals, produce toxins to fend off other corals. In a small environment such as an aquarium these toxins can quickly build up to unhealthy or even lethal levels. Regular PWC's and use of GAC are the best ways to prevent this along w/ skimming.
