How much is that going to run you?

The power filter will be of no use IMO......LR and a skimmer is all you need.

Hmmm you can save yourself some money by buying the tank alone with the stand.

Here is my take on it.

1. Running a hood on the tank MAY throw off your PH due to low gas exchange. ( if it is one of those plastic ones which i assume )
2. You will likely end up buying new lights anyways because the 35w light that the hood has in it wont do the tank justice, nor is it powerfull enough for corals.
3. The filter will likely not be used if you have enough LR and a skimmer

Just from personal experience, trying to help you out along the way...buy everything you want the first time...not the 2nd or 3rd time. Spend that on something to add to your tank.
