yeah, the tank looks great, but for me.. has to be glass. I just know i'll scratch acrylic up like crazy.
As for lighting, I use a Coralife Mini (2 x 18w) I know a lot of the nano guys here have this light, but others have opted for a walmart/home depot 27w compact fluorescent desk lamp.
For filter: azoo palm filter, redsea nano filter, tom's rapids mini canister or zoomed 501 canister.
right now, Dr. Foster & Smith have the Azoo Palm Filter for like $6.. great deal for a nice little quiet filter.
