That is nice! And not very expensive. 160$ is not bad at all! Would that light fixture on it support the required bulbs for the live rock/coral? or would i have to replace that?

Live Rock and fish yes, Coral, no. You should look into a T-5 HO for that.

You need the open lid for good gas exchange. Only people who keep lids on their tanks have critters that will jump out. Other than that, no lid. You will get normal evap with that fixture. But, you filling with RO water, not saltwater. The only time you fill re-fill with saltwater is when your doing a water change.

No, those lights will allow you to keep anything in that tank. Clams, Anemones, SPS.

will snails crawl out opening in the lid? lol

Ok here is my new official plan, i have a 35 gallon hexagon tank i keep my cichlids in now. It is a tall tank obviously. They usually stay towards the bottom so its stupid to have them in there. I have another 55 gal tank and a filter good enough for it. Going to change them over to the 55 gal tank. And use the 35 gal hexagon tank for my saltwater tank. My aunt and uncle gave me everything they had with their setup and they had it running for years with no problems until they got lazy and stopped doing water changes and other maintenance, like changing the filters, and the whole tank turned green. Probably an old bulb that turned to the red spectrum. They returned all their fish and gave me the tank.

So 35 gal hexagon tank. It has a blue spectrum bulb in it now which i believe is correct for the tank.
