I'm debating on what kind of new tank I want to get now that I'm finally getting back into the hobby after a multiple months break. I know I want an acryllic tank, and I've been trying to look into my options for corner tanks because I want a reef set up. Tenecor offers a 70, 95, and 120 gallon model. I like the 70 gallon. I was wondering mostly, should I buy the base model at their advertised price of $643, the simplicity plus at $910, or the marine ready at $1251? All I'll be keeping is a reef with MAYBE (not likely) one or two very small fish. I want MH lighting, and the marine ready doesn't come with that, so how hard would it be to get MH installed? Is the marine ready equipment good, or would I be better off to buy the base model and buy my own stuff? I also want to buy the green marble looking Tenetex stand/canopy.

Well Im very much a noob, but I do have a 70 Rectangular Simplicity Plus and the tank is great. But now Im very limited to size of pumps and skimmrs I can use and there is not much room for much else if I wanted to upgrade. And looking at the tank your thinking of getting the marine has more room in the tank for rock and fish.

I went with the marine ready corner 120 gallon...bought it from http://www.tropicalfishstore.com ....they had a deal for 10% which I believe is still available.

I'm running a Hamilton 250W reefstar halide and 260w of power compacts.

When I ordered the tank, I made sure they made the canopy tall enough to allow room for the lights. I also had them stain the canopy and stand with my own supplied stain...they were very accommodating.

I'll pop a picture up later.
