-Euro-Fil 1 - 125 Reef Filter 24"x 12.5 x 16" wet/dry

-AquaEuro USA 135 Protein Skimmer

Plan looks good! The most common paint I have seen is krylon fusion. I honestly think the sticker stuff is better, but it has to be totally adhesive on one side. A lot of places just sell the black roll that you tape on the back which looks like crap. If you get the totally adhesive stuff, it looks really good.

You are correct. Just be sure to use 1.5+ lbs/g if you are planning on stocking fairly heavily. You can put a bunch in your sump to keep your DT clean looking.

If you use filter socks be sure to clean them out weekly so they don't break down all the stuff they trap and return the nutrients to your system.
