I am having a difficult time following this thread. Links to a tank suitable for WHAT?

No, I do not recommend the SeaClone. It is not worth the price. An AquaC Remora would be a better option.

need for the protein skimmers...would i need an overflow system for it or is it basically in it already like is it the euro style or whatever.... like in lafishguy's videos (the "euro" style)

YouTube - Episode 58, pt1, LIve Rock and Live Sand in the Reef Tank, L

If I need the internal overflow system could I get a link to an acrylic tank WITH the overflow system ready to put together(no drilling)

If I DON'T need the overflow system can i have a link to an acrylic tank(both have to be 55 or less gallons preferably) WITHOUT the overflow system in it.

Overflow system you suggest AquaC Remora Protein Skimmer with Maxijet 1200 Pump and Drain Fitting
Other thing for it AquaC Surface Prefilter Box

Also could I get a link to good sand,Rocks, salt, and tap filter thing if needed(I would get the tank in about a month maybe more and sand and rock then skimmer if I can go without for a bit.)

also a stand for the tank as well possibly?

I found some tanks on craigslist and I want to buy the 30 gallon tanks one... I know I know it will be harder and less fish but I am ok with 1 or 2 fish I'm interested in how it all works. Assuming i get it is there any cheaper proteen skimmers then recommended. I saw in another thread you recommended this Coralife 65 Skimmer Coralife Super Skimmer 65 for a 30 gallon tank. Also how many and what power Power Heads would you recommend. Just want enough info so I can start a build thread and ask q's as i go along(everything would be incredibly spaced out due to my only pay in allowance and might get a job in summer[I'm 14].

Yes, this would do the trick.

As for powerheads, I would use 1 or 2, depending on the reef structure and livestock present.

Most of us use Instant Ocean. There are many good brands on the market, but Instant Ocean is the most widely available and reliable.

Last question

So I am hopefully getting my 55 gallon tank with stand today that I found on craigslist(it'll be at my other house because of my weekends) I am also going to have to sell a few of my beloved airsoft to start it up Just so I know what should I buy first? after I know this and have the cash I will start a build thread. My guess is Salt, Dry and Live rock, and Live sand(test kits to??? 50 bucks for all the right ones)?
