    I have 260 (4 - 65w PC) over my 90 gallon with built in over flow which has been upgraded from a 72 with homemade overflow -- yeah it overflowed once on the floor and wife said time to upgrade. But the new stand and tank look awesome. I am looking at upgrading the lights to 760 watts which consists of 2 - 250w metal halide and 260w of pc lighting as I want to be able to have a wider arrange of corals and put some clams on the sand bed.
