Buying a new tank

Hello Pete:

You sent me the training program awhile back.  I have read it completely (finally) and am eager to start buying all the necessary equipment.  In the past you had recommended the Red Sea Max 130D Plug & Play Coral Reef System 34 Gallon Aquarium.  It's no longer available and its newer version is roughly $1500 (a bit too steep for me).  In reading several posts you seem (don't want to put words in your mouth) to like the Innovative Marine 40-G Mini Nuvo with two notable exceptions (the flow rate and the poorly constructed stand).  In one post you mention you spoke with the manufacturer and to reduce the rate by half is an easy fix.  Is that the aquarium I should buy?  Do you have another you like better/is better for a SHOWLR in the 40 gallon range under $1K?   Thanks in advance for your help.  I've read your training manual, but I'm new to this and want to start off correctly.  Thanks again!
