I have a 400g reeftank and another 200g reeftank... These things are gard to keep clean...lobster is a very "dirty" inver to keep... I was planning on setting up a lobster tank too....
this is what I was going to use....
100g acc. tank (better insulation)
I got a comp. unit from a coke machine and will use this for a chiller... put the evap. into a bath of anti-freeze with a coil for the SW as a heat exchange... (a realy chiller that could keep the tank @56*F would cost around $800!)
a good size protine skimmer (removes waster and provides o2)
a power head for water movement....
lighting wouldn't be too important a vho or 2...

I think the hardest part is to keep them feeding.. from what I have seen they stop eating in a tank and start to eat eachother!!!!
I will post some specs when I get it running...
