I really enjoy the 45 size I have. I had to pick this or CAD lights. 36 is the max space I have. I really really wanted the 30inch long, but I’m glad I picked this. I like the depth as well, which they didn’t have in the 30inch long. All in all you made the perfect choice “larger volume in terms of maintaining a good reef with stable chemistry but then not worrying about other factors”A quick update...
I am not getting the JBJ 25 Flat Panel. I am going with the 45 Flat Panel.
The 25 is only 18” long. That is not even as long as a standard 10 gallon aquarium. After much thought, it is just too small. I wanted 24-30” long and the 45 is 26.5” by 22” deep. Yes I know I said I thought the 45 Rimless with the curved front corners seemed too big. However, I think the rounded corners may have made it “feel” bigger. Weighing the pros and cons, there was one factor that figured heavily into my decision: larger water volume. It is better for tank health and livestock selection. Knowing I will have an anemone at some point, I felt it was right to go with the largest tank that would fit in the space. Lastly, I think I have decided I like the option of a standard rectangle better than the curved corners.
LOL, that was not quick. I have no idea what the word “concise” means. That is okay, the best build threads are the ones where you can really see the thought process of the OP being worked out.
Keep us posted!! I’m soo eager to see these next steps.... Hang in there!!
