Upgrade opinions wanted

Opinion #1 :

90 gallon or 125 gallon. Besides the obvious pros for the 125 - are people with the 90 happy with the amount of real estate offered? I like the size and look of the 90 better than the 125 for the room in which the aquarium will go, but of course am concerned that I will only want a larger one later.

Opinion #2 :

Non- Drilled tank with something like a Rena Filstar Canister Filter or would a Eheim Canister or Fluval be better?

Non - drilled tank with an Aquafuge Hang on back refugium or Ecosystem Pro System with Skimmer and Miracle mud fuge?

Drilled Tank with a Tidepool Filtration System from Marineland ( I am really having trouble with the cost of this system when it looks as if it is just plastic storage bins.) Is there something that I am overlooking about this system which would justify the cost $179 without pump or return tubes?)

Right now I am really favoring the Aquafuge System or Ecosystem Pro.

Thoughts opinions and suggestion gratefully accepted.

If it were me, I would go with the 125 drilled tank, and put a clear rubbermaid tub in as the sump. When I think 125, 6ft long tank, I think TANG!!!

Just to refreesh my mind what are the dimensions of the two tanks?

If given a choice of drilled or undrilled I would go drilled if the price difference whent to great.
