iv been doing some reading and salt water and hex tanks just dont seem to work without dealing with flow issues and what not. and its a crazy amount of info to absorb. So i was thinking fresh water, maybe some plants and a moss wall on the back with some small schooling fish.

that was just what i had in mind , dont know if its possible or not but that's what im hear to learn

my hood has a 150w MH in it and as of right now i have no filter so i will have to buy a suitable filter.

That's a lot of light! You could go SW and keep jellyfish in the hex but that'd be a difficult species. lol Are you thinking a HOB or canister filter.

i would like a canister filter just to keep the back clean but im not picky, the panels are only 10" so it would have to be a smaller hob filter.
