The Tao would work. I have a single unit on my 60g cube (2' deep ). One usually covers about two feet, so two would do ya. They are cheap now too. I paid $120 for one last Christmas and now I see them for $150 for two.

I'm following since I just got a 55 for my son.

Well there was a bit of a delay but this tank is back in action

I want to order everything this weekend, and I have just about everything down. Wp10, hob filter, 200w heater, 50g bag o' salt, and... Lights. Haven't figured that one out yet. Definitely a fowlr, so I'm just looking for something cheap bright, and relatively nice looking.

As far as stocking, I have a friend with a 90, and I'm considering a Yellow Eye Kole Tang for this tank, in addition to a single percula clown. I have done research on the tang, and am aware of the health issues associated with confined tangs. My question: for a period of growth, would it be acceptable to house the juvenile tang, until transferring it to my friends 90 reef? I ran it by him and he said it is ok with him to take it eventually.

I ordered everything today - should be here by Wednesday.

I also ordered 8lbs more dry rock from BRS, just to get a little more substance in the whole scape.

Sorry to double post: I decided to use tap water for the initial fillup of this tank, with prime treatment.

The tap water here is apparently very high quality, 0 nitrates or phosphates visible and the city water report shows barely any heavy metal in the water. Prime is on the way!

A blue grey paint job has really made the tank seem nicer, from the old plastic-y wood finish before. Pics when I get home

I probably would advise against a skimmer with job filter. No need for this small of a tank fish only.

Ok, thanks for the input, I haven't bought a hob yet just the skimmer. If there are mechanical filtration issues in the future I'll look into a hob again.

Finally filled it, and am using using a temporary pump and heater until more supplies arrive. 10lbs more rock is coming in the mail
