Also you can add floor lamps to the sides to get better lighting in at all levels, I know you got a salt tank but its worked wonders on my planted 55 FW.

Again thanks for your service, Us army k-love(97-02) combat vet.

Is it obvious as to the fall off of light in those areas? You could use those outer areas for lower light animals. Mushrooms, Zoas, Palytoas, etc.
That is actually a great Idea.

another question... after my cycle and I switch everything over, Im going to use my 55 as a sump/fuge. My stand design has two braces in the front middle to support the weight, so it will have three doors. How do I get the 55 in the stand after my 120 is setup?

put a door on the end. hide it if you want too. just slide the 55 into one end and service it from the front

I thought about that. But I only have a 30" space on each side of the tank for a 48" tank to go under. I think I decided to move the location of the 120 to make it possible. Pending Spousal Approval
