I actually bought that same tank used. Doesn't have that stand, he was a carpenter and built a custom one for his wife. Sadly it is quite small and can't fit anything under it, but does look nice. And yes, it is 48 long.

Here is mine:http://www.aquariumadvice.com/forums...ld-194395.html

Yep, that's her. Mine needs to cycle faster, I want it up and running so I can get more coral.

Well, if I do get that tank I think I'll get these lights. 2 blue and 2 white. What color temp do I want? 14000K?

Darn scuba guy didn't buy enough stuff to pay for the tank. Now I have to wait and hope it doesn't get sold before I can go buy it.

10000k for t5 and 14000k halide is what I run. But 10000k t5 is pretty standard for them but you can go 14000k if you want. Its more of a cool blue color. I think the new ati coral plus bulbs are 12000k so its kind of up to you I think

Question about a refugium.

Couldn't I just take all the filter media out of a HOB filter and put some rubble and chaeto algae in, clip on a little light and use it as a mini refugium? Would that work to grow ampipods and copepods for my tank?

So 10000k are more yellow and 14000k is to the blue end the spectrum? 12000 would probably be a good choice then.

If I could I'd get 14000k. It's not actinic blue but more of a mix of actinic and 10000k. I think itll look nice if you have 1 actinic, 1 purple plus, 1 10000k and 1 14000k or 20000k. That's the best combo for me.

Purple? Never thought of that!
