Advice: Stop spreading money around on several tanks. Stick to 1 display + a smaller tank to fool around and experiment. Buy good equipment at first and get rocks and AQUASCAPE it in the way you like the first time. Do it right. Once it has been aquascaped (one of those nice aquascapes you never want to tear down), add your corals accordingly. Do not adjust the aquascape to FIT your corals. By aquascaping first, you allocate the space available for certain corals. You give yourself restrictions and these restrictions (with careful planning) will lead to a nicely designed tank. If you ever want to aquascape... just go out and buy a coral.. its better for you!
