New Tank

I am considering getting a new tank as soon as I have the money. I was looking for a 29-36 gallon tank. I was looking at my LFS and I saw the Oceanic Systems Cube. It measures 20 1/2 x 18 1/2 x 21 1/2. It is a 30 gallon. I wondered if this would be a good SW aquarium, or should I keep looking? I also saw a 36 gallon tank for around the same price. (Both include stand, hood, and tank)

Do you want FO, FOWLR, or full reef? Reef's need strong, strong lighting, and a deeper 'cube' tank needs even more lighting to penetrate fully.

I forgot to mention that the 36 gallon was a regular aquarium with a bowed front.

Go for the biggest one you can afford. When the gallonage is the same go for the one that will offer the most surface area of water.

If you get some sort of "standard" tank then it is easier to get lighting for it and to upgrade later. (ie 36" long or 48" long")
