Sounds good!

What about co2?

I'm setting up a very similar tank at the moment. 6x54w, but I'll be running only 4x54w almost all the time.

That's a pretty big debate. A lot of people like Rena/Fislstar XP series, a lot of people like Fluval's....

but for my money, Eheims are the best. The classic series is a beast: great filtration, excellent quality, long term reliability. I also like the Eheim Pro II series.

On my 48"x24"x25" I'm currently putting together, I'll be running two Eheim Pro II 2028s.
