90 gal cube ideas

I am looking for some input on lighting options and skimmer selection, thinking sca 90 with a symmetry overflow led lighting maybe ghl or g4. How many lights needed for a mixed reef? Skimmer I was thinking oc regal 150, or is there a more cost effective option? Any thoughts

Depends, are you doing a canopy over the top, or are you keeping it open?

A single GHL LX7 or XR30 G4 fits the area just fine and will provide more than enough light and have most of the bells and whistles..
If their price is what you want to spend then either will be more than sufficient..

Going back to this... are you sure that's a 90?

36x36x24 is a 134 (technically 134.65)

I say that because I have a 30x30x26 and I'm just over 100g.
