Very nice!

What are the light-green corals in the 2nd picture from the last (it's the coral at the bottom front-center/right in the full tank shot to the left of the SPS).

Speaking of the SPS coral (birdsnest?) how long have you had it? You've got PC lighting, is that correct?

Looks great! I would personally add more reds and blues. If you can find them, some blue zoanthids would look great near the top of your tank.

Just a word of warning, the red scooter dragonet looks a bit thin. I'd either add more pods, culture more pods in a separate tank, or rehome it to a larger reef tank...

Those clowns look happy!


SnyderGuy, just for kicks, look into the Red Sea Max S Series.
