Yes it can and would look nice. However, I recommend at least a 55 gallon tank for saltwater. The fish are much more sensitive to changes in water quality so a bigger tank allows for more volume to absorb any problems.

This particular package comes with the tank and light. There are other packages available (at a higher price) that include a filter. Better to get this one though and then choose what you like for filtration.

answer 2
The color refers to the background. This is an acrylic aquarium with no glass. The back piece of the aquarium is actually a colored piece of acrylic if you get blue or black. Clear will be just like the rest and then you can add your own background if you choose. I have the blue and it looks great! The hood will always be black.

The back of the aquarium is either blue, black, or clear. It is comparable to putting an image on the back of the tank that shines through to the front.

answer 4
This tank is NOT GLASS. It's one piece ACRYLLIC construction. I have the 46 gallon clear bow front and the entire tank is crystal clear so assume the colored acryllic tanks are the colors stated. There is NO removable top/hood. It has pre cut holes for air line tubing (2), heater, filter and light. Heat from the light eventually melts/warps the top of the tank making the light fixture sit crooked.

Cleaning the inside of this tank will have to be done with a combination of magnetic scraper and hand held scraper. The opening at the top is a bit restrictive so thought should be given to the kind of aqua-scaping you will use. Live rock, etc. might be best placed in the middle of the tank to give you room to maneuver around the sides.

You don't want to do this. There is plenty of room to add even medium large decor (just play with angle and turning the decor to get it in and out to clean as needed). Also of plenty cut-out room for heater, air lines, power filter or tubing for canister filter. It is tall sitting on a matching stand, I have to use a small step stool sometimes (I'm 5'6"), to replace artificial plants after cleaning them of algae. The acrylic is thick and SeaClear thought of everything in their design. The original cut-out for the lighting fixture and splash guard is a perfect fit you don't want to mess with. The aquarium is one solid piece well fused together at what almost appears like no seams. I use the splash guard, but with a Marineland LED light fixture. Very happy with this tank after one and half years of use; I even bought the same thing in the 46g bowfront 5 months ago (consolidating smaller tanks) for another room in the house - essentially same set-up with larger openings.

I just created a post that describes the openings in the top of the tank with approximate opening sizes (based solely on my recollection not from actual measurements).

Yes, you could easily use a canister filter with this tank as there are inlet and outlet openings in the top. Hope this helps.
