as a rough sketch it looks good, i have seen your other post so i dont need to repeat what they have there, but what brand name is your skimmer, filter, ect. those play a role

Be sure to make friends with your local saltwater fish store too...throughout your new setup, they can help out a lot.
So far, your initial tank ideas sound good.

o i meant an octopus makes triple the mess up a fish around the same size so it would be fitting to have all his systems tripled out. But this is just somthing ive read qiet a few times in many care gides so i fingure it may be correct.
