It is a good starter tank for smaller fish and low-light corals. It works out to be a 46 gallon Bowfront. It comes with 2x 36w and 2x 24 watt T5 lighting, an overflow box, heater, a stand and a wet/dry filter. This is where I would draw the line. It appears easy enough to convert that wet/dry into a rudimentary sump, if you take all the media out of the compartments. You could get away with running just carbon in one of those compartments, but I personally would empty those compartments and use that for a refugium.
If you want to upgrade to harder to care for corals, you will need stronger lighting.
Fish selection will be limited to smaller fish, such as clowns, blennies, gobies, chromis and dwarf angels. If you want anything larger, such as tangs, triggers, most lionfish, larger angels, etc, you will need to buy a larger tank.
