Thanks. That is what I was thinking.

If I was to get s 40-46 gallon tank. Would a HOB filter and HOB protein skimmer work okay for me?? I will want to do live sand and rocks and maybe eventually coral. Would I need to worry about the lighting until I want to do corals???

I've had softies (mushrooms, leather, zoas, etc) while only using a hob filter. Didn't have a protein skimmer on it at all. It's a 40 breeder. It now has a 30 gallon sump with still no protein skimmer. The macroalgae grows like crazy in it, so must be doing a pretty good job removing nutrients. It also has about 50 lbs of live rock. As for lights, they make no difference until you get into corals.
