The hood should have a plastic strip in back that can be cut/snapped off for your filter. Most in SW
go without a hood and have an open top with egg crate or mesh; it's better for gas/air exchange. Depending on what type of tank you're going to keep the lighting may have to be upgraded. FO
tanks don't need additional lighting; you will have to upgrade if you plan to keep corals. Aragonite substrate is great for pH buffering; that's what I would recommend. The UGF
is up to you to use or not; I do not use one.
