Hey all, I foiund someone selling a 55 gallon uniquarium. I don't really want a uni, but the shape is ok, and I need to get a tank soon, plus I think I could drill into the back and make it into one big overflow box to take water down to my actual sump. Anyhow, first question:

Does the 55 gallon uniquarium have 55 gallons of space + the built in sump, or does it have 55 gallons total?


Second:

measurments of the tank are 36 x 18 wide, by 20 high. Would one 250 watt MH work or do I need 2?

I don't know about the volume of the tank but you can definitly get by on one MH. I would go with 2 though.
