Mine is 23x22 on a tall stand...DSB is deep sand bed...4-6 inches of fine aragonite oolite sand...after a few weeks it sets-up an anerobic system that deals with nitrates and stuff...I think we have some articles that explain it better that I can...I know it really worked for me...I am just short and not as young as you guys for all that work reaching down in the tank...I think the coral people will tell you you will have to place your corals up high to get close to your lights...I had thought of getting a hanging lighting system to keep it away from the water..


Hope I haven't just confused you...
