Bang for buck a 55 is the best option. My rule of thumb is always get the biggest and best for budget.. also don't know if you are aware but petco has sales regularly for a dollar a gallon in which the tank will only run you 55 bucks , however with that said I've only ever known them to carry up to 55 gallon.

I got a 55 gallon tank and if there sale is coming up again I might do a sump and refugium with a couple of 40b tanks, I figure if I buy everything piece by I can make for a lot nicer set up.

Or possibly the eshopps R100 refugium? Heard it was pretty good. Fairly cheap too. What do some of yall pay a week in RO/DI water? Do you have your own purification system or do you buy from LFS?

I'm using an Aqueon ProFlex Model 3 sump right now and it seems like it's working well. I'm also buying an RO/DI unit today actually. Cheaper in the long run and easier than buying the water elsewhere IMO

I saw the aqueons too but the eshopps was cheaper, and I'm not looking for modular just want a pre built refugium.
Do they come with a pump? I'll get a over flow from the site mentioned earlier.
