I don't think it really matters, does it? The output would still be the same it's just a different design mechanism.

Tank: 90 Gal w/ 10 Gal DIY fuge, 100+ lbs LR, 4+ inch sandbed.
Fish:yellow tang, hippo tang, heni butterfly, hermits and snails.
Misc: 4x65 watt PC lighting, seaclone skimmer, 3 powerheads, uv sterilizer.
