I just think branded tanks like that aren't very popular in the US period. Most of us buy regular tanks at the lfs or wait for $1 gallon sales.

Both of those seem to have pretty poor reviews online. Why not save up a bit more and get a better rig? In the long run I've learned it's best to spend more once than to spend even more twice.

You could matrix or some other ceramic media in that refugium section for bio. Would also provide a great grow out place for plays of fish fry!
