    Was thinking of setting up a small SPS only tank seperate from my system and ran Zeo. I know the risks and arguements about Zeovit. That beside, I saw a inexpensive hex tank on craigslist. These old tanks are a dime a dozen and seem to have a fair surface to depth ratio if not too low of gallon( smaller hex tanks seem to run slender and tall). Well here goes, remember this will be a non display tank! First off start w/a 60 hex (as pictured later) drill the standard rear overflow. Then drill the 4 sides halfway up for closed loop OM squirt with intake in the back bottom. Lit w/a large Lumen Brite aka new Aquactinics 400 ballast if it will ever work!:-(   My biggest concern is the 7+ holes it needs drilled...

    How about a 40 breeder?  It is fairly inexpensive and easy to drill.  With Zeo, the more gallons you have in your system, the more additives it will need. It can get crazy expensive so you might want to try dosing a few additives like Pohl's coral vitalizer, Sponge power, amino acids or coral snow before you get deep into it.
