are you planning on supplementing with any actinic lighting. You also may want change the bulb to around 10000K or higher. But that is my personal preference I am using a 14000K bulb in my reef. Also you might want to add another circulation pump (power head) depending on the type of coral you plan on adding. Best of luck looking foward to seeing the build.
