What size pump will be running it. The size of the filter doesn't make a difference, the flow is what matters

It will be enough to run it in the beginning but I'm not sure down the road. That breaks down to 800gph. I think for your size tank you need to be be looking in the range of 2500gph with a couple powerheads to keep flow moving.

love the pictures from chatuchak, I have two sister inlaws from Thailand and have always wanted to make the trip over, and the tank full of cichlids, I correct that the price on the tank was 15 bot, that's like .30 cents American, I could see myself going nuts in a place like that, thanks for the photos

That light would be bright enough but how wide is it compared to the tank. If its much more narrow you will see shadows along the edge of the whole tank.
