Make sense to me, but bear in mind I've never kept a marine aquarium. But I gather stable water chemistry is even more important on the salty side of things, and the larger the volume of water, the more resistant to sudden change it is. A 40 seems to be a good compromise between size and "still fits in your apartment."

Those Red Sea all in one units are very tempting.

Yes, it will be a trade off I think. Be so nice to do though. Especially if I can get a second hand one.
