What equipment will you recommend?

Hi all:
I have some doubts yet and just received email informing that on Monday i will receive my 65x28x24 tank.

i am now concerned in all the right equipment to use, I want a FOWLR tank (then i guess will go reef).

I will use a Sump/and maybe later a fuge.
but i dont know which equipment to buy. (omg feels so noob)

i want to use a closed loop system with a SCWD for wave making.

i know the"the more the better and the most the best "rule but a sump the same size of tank is not an option.
how many gph would you recommend ?
the height wont be more than 5'
any other suggestions will be highly appreciated

Thanks in advance for the info.


Cyano tastes great with guacamole!! but I must confess anemone sushi tastes better...

WIth a tank that size I would suggest the a mag 12 or something like that for your return from your sump to your main tank and something like a Little Giant 'Quarium Pump 4-MDQX-SC for the close loop.

Is this tank predrilled? If not you will need an overflow for the sump system and you will need to plumb the closed loop so as to limit the amount of air being taken thru the closed loop intake as well as configure the plumbing so it can go up and over the back of the tank. Probaly put an acess cap on the top of that so you can prime the line with water.
