On the lighting, since I am going to be doing a fowlr tank I was thinking about instead of doing the t5 of doing LEDs instead. From my understanding LEDs use less energy and produce less heat. I also like the idea of the lunar light option, which I have heard of people using the lunars when the lights first come on and before they go off to help give a more gradual change in the lighting. Any negatives of using LEDs that I should know of? Here are a couple of links a some of the fixtures that I am looking at, although will continue to look around more to see what is available.

LED is the top of the lighting chain right now. You can't go wrong with those. In a FOWLR, either would do ya. Double bright LED and you could easily keep some LPS and Softies.

Doing more searching came across another skimmer that I am thinking about, reviews that I have seen seem to be good on it. Was wondering if anyone has had any experience about this skimmer or heard anything about it Hydro Koralia Nano-Skim Internal Protein Skimmer.

Thanks for the link reefing, more research to do My one book that I ordered should be coming in anytime now, and have another one on the way by Fenner that was recommended to me that I just ordered. So will have plenty of reading material for awhile now.
