Welcome from Middle of nowhere Missouri. I'm about 2 hours away. Sounds like you have plenty of time to plan and ask questions. You came to the right place. Glad to have you with us.

Is there a local club or anything I can at least join a little local community?
There's Slash. Saint Louis area saltwater hobbyist club. I belonged to them years ago. They usually meet once a month on a Thursday night at a LFS and then to a members house. I just couldn't hook up with them because of Thursday night and working Friday morning.

They have a frag swap twice a year. One in the spring and one in the early fall. Pretty decent swaps.

So just to update everyone! I have been persuaded to go against the 55g. I'm going to try to find a bigger size. I was about to drill for a shadow box but decided against it because of the strength of the glass. Also it would be incredibly hard to aquascape. Idk what size I'm going to do now. Kinda on a stand still! What size should I do now?
