Corner-Flo?

I am about to buy a 55-gallon drilled Corner-Flo tank w/ cabinet stand and a wet/dry filter for $500... I need any feedback about this tank/filter asap!

I'm going to move this to the General Hardware/Equipment section. I think you might better a broader response there.

The only bad thing I have heard is that it`s hard to provide adequate flow to all areas of the tank because of the shape.

maybe it's "overflow"... it's a regular 55-gallon tank, but one of the corners is blocked off by a black plastic piece and 2 drilled holes on the other side of the plastic for the wet/dry setup... they also told me it's mainly used for reef tanks

I recently bought a 125g Perfecto CornerFlo tank. The reasoning, supposedly, for the overflows in the corners is it's a better location. It sort of makes the corners round and easier to stack live rock.
Are these brand new items? Price sounds a little high. I paid $280 for my tank, but I got a super deal.

Yes, they are all brand new items, but I didn't feel like waiting around for a used tank to my liking (I have searched many sites looking for used ones, and only 2 tanks to chose from) I know it does sound high, but it came with a pretty nice stand, lights + bulbs, and glass covers

Yeah, it's tuff finding what you want used...that is until after you buy it. I ended up buying my new tank after looking for a used 1 for a few months.
What kind of lights are you getting? Forget about the glass covers. You don't want to use them anyway. See if you can get a test kit or 2 instead. Are you getting a pump too? You need something to get the water from the sump back into the tank.

Yea, the wet/dry filter comes with the sump and everything needed. I thought the glass covers were necessary to keep the water warmer or something. I was under the impression that they were important.

If this is going to be a saltwater tank, you are better off with no covers as a covered tank can have pH issues due to a lack of good o2 exchange. No probs with FW tho.

Cccapt/All, I forgot to mention I moved this from the brackish section.
