hob is a hang on back, the only problem is when your water level in your aquarium fluctuates then is changes how the skimmer skims.As for lighting I always wanted to try some led lighting out, a 36 is kinda deep so florescent don't seem to do so well, of course you could do metal halide but then you have a problem with the heat...

as far as a canister filter, I ran a Marineland hot canister filter but it required weekly cleaning which was a pita. Even the cheap hang on filter that came with it would clog up within a week with pods and life. I took out the media for a while but eventually just removed it and just ran the protien skimmer with some Koralia ones for flow.

So I have actually decided on a 46 bow front.. So you think just a protein skimmer I'm still learning and I just don't want to crash and burn you know??

a good protien skimmer, and lots of live rock and lots of flow, I think a 46 is a better choice.
