    It looks good, I like the fact that your fish room is behind it.

    Been a while since I have done anything with the tank really. Only thing I have done since these pictures is change out the skimmer to a Reef Octopus. I could never get the ASM G3 recirculating tuned in right.

    I decided this week to order some new lights. I'm not happy with the Reef radiance LEDs. I've have the tank up and running for almost a year and I've had 0 coraline growth in the display. I have Coraline growing in the refugium under the 5000K LED bulbs and not where I want it. So I ordered a couple ballasts and the rest of the stuff to build a 4 x 54W T5HO fixture. I'm starting out with just 4 bulbs but plan on making the fixture large enough to accommodate 6 if I want to add. I still don't have any corals because I was waiting for Coraline to grow. I used T5s in the past on my 125 and 47 and I was happy with them, so time to go back to what I know.

    The only thing I seem to be able to grow well is algae, lol. I have green film in the display a little GHA in the display and a lot of GHA and some cyano under the macro in the refugium. I need to get on a better water change schedule, just seems like I'm always busy and forget about them. I placed a Reef Cleaners order this morning as I have never really had more than a handful of astrea snails in the tank.

    Once I get the algae under control I plan on starting to add some corals and a few more fish. My friend has 3 small Yellow tangs in a 90 and offered me to take one as they are starting to get too big for his tank.
