I agree with Rex. I wouldn't go with the reef ready tank. I have an allglass 90 that is "reef ready"--a single corner overflow. I was using a trickle filter, but had huge CO2 loss. I recently took out the trickle, plugged the overflow, and went with 2 canister filters. Its made a big difference in my CO2 absorbtion and therefore the pH, etc.

Another problem I had with the overflow is floating debris "shed plant leaves" was constantly clogging it; I had a couple of close calls with water backing up the tank and nearly spilling over. You need to keep a close eye on this or disaster awaits!
