Looks like your off to a great start following! I would make sure you link your build thread so others and yourself can easily see! Plus a badge! Depending on the size of the tank and corals maybe two lights will be needed.

I just started a 30.2 waterbox, I would suggest a sicce 1.55, if the 2.0 fits in there go for it. How much do you wanna spend on powerheads, give me a budget and I can recommend some for you.
No budget really mate rather buy it once than buy cheap n buy twice. Ill have a look at the sicce 2.0 now thanks

Yeah
Nice you might want to look into getting another light and for power heads you can’t beat the mp10s I would try one at first and see how it goes.
I'm just looking powerheads now was thinking of going with ai nero as i am going to buy a second ai prime and can use them all on same app

Got the stand today wanted to go with a low stand so the tank could be about eye level when sat on the sofa. Did not like the height of the stand that came with the 35.2 . Water going in tomorow
