    80 gallon

    I think your initial idea would be great for an 80g and you wouldnt have any problems keeping corals. You could keep clams with 2x400w MH's. As for supplemental lighting, look into VHO lighting instead of PC's. They are much stronger. If it were me, I would do 2x250 or 2x400w 10k, and VHO...

    Sexy Shrimp

    From what I have heard, they are easy to care for, and are harmless to others in your tank. I would like to add a few someday as well to my 30g.

    looking to add mh to my 55 gal

    I have a 175w 20k on my 30g....and it looks great. Its not really that blue to me...and I run 110w 50/50 PC along with the MH. If you can, got with the 250's. The more light the better. Also, dont rate lighting by watts per gallon...that really doesnt mean anything.

    I think that lighting would only be good for polyps and mushrooms. Not sure about other corals, but would give those a try first.

    tank ?

    Im not sure, but I would just take the tank to the side of the house and fill it up with water with the hose. You can then check for leaks or any signs of wear.
