Thanks, for all the input everyone, I really appreciate it. After looking into the Rainbow Lifegard system, I believe its going to be the way to go for me. As for heating, I really like the 1000w Pro Heat II digital titanium heater.;N=2004+22787 Does anyone have any first hand experience with this model? I'm curious as to its dimensions, so I can determine whether it will fit the Lifegard heater module.

Hmm... Something just came to mind... With a 1000 watt heater, plus inevitably 500+ watts of lighting. That's already approximately 1500+ watts of power consumed by this setup. Divide that by ~ 115 volts and it seems this setup is already going to utilize about 13 amps of power, not even including the pump and other accessories. I now wonder whether I am at risk of overloading a single 15amp circuit at home. Can someone correct me if I'm wrong on this?
