Alright, will do.

If so then why not make the 60 the lions home? No reef. No one has really mentioned it but power filters and canisters are not recommended for saltwater tanks, have a bit of a read of some of the articles on here about the different types of filtration for salt tanks. My one regret when setting up my 55 is not having it drilled for a sump. Research before rushing in!
I have a 12g sump on the 60, but its a bit of a hassle to drill the tank and plumb it.

I cant use the 20 because it is all chipped up and is for reptiles.

Alright, here is my stock list for the 40b-
1 Fuzzy dwarf lion
1 Engineer goby
1 Falco hawkfish

Would this work out?

I will have a deep sand bed for the goby, 2-3 inches. And plenty of rock for the hawk fish and lion. Around 50lbs. I will be useing an aquaclear 50 on this tank and a skimmer (not decided yet)
