    Canister filter can work in saltwater, but I would only use them on a fowlr, or softy tank, which that tank is. Canisters become problematic for corals for various reasons, mainly maintenance reasons, so you would need to ditch that for something else eventually.

    Better options imo
    https://denver.craigslist.org/for/d/...237589220.html just needs rock and youre good
    https://denver.craigslist.org/fuo/d/...252261890.html would need to call and see since no pics, but pretty good price for a 125
    https://denver.craigslist.org/for/d/...240003086.html nicer stand then the one you posted, is reef ready, but about same setup for less $. I would ditch the canister on this and put in a sump instead, but otherwise could be a great fowlr starter tank
    That third one isn't reef ready...more reasonable price though than the original 75.

    You might be an engineer if...You have no life and can prove it mathematically.

    The joy of engineering is to find a straight line on a double logarithmic diagram.

        Maybe. Really hard to tell if that's a center overflow or just the angle of the light. If it is a center overflow that would be a great starter tank for the price.

            Look at the third picture in the ad, right by the yellow tang you can see the overflow.....I think it is RR. And a nice looking setup!

              Look at all the pics and the argument for "Canister filter works great" becomes a big Nope. Toss it, get or build a sump (20g Long for a 75 would suffice as long as you have a good skimmer) and add a few more bulb T5 and you are golden. Good luck
