Wow, I really like those two tree like structures in the middle of the tank. Are you planning to put any corals on top?

Absolutely The new LEDs are directly above those.
Looking at that picture again, I realized its time to scrape the back wall.

Yep, it is a Blue Hippo, He always turn out that color in pictures even though the picture is not altered at all. It must be what Ziggy said, the lighting.
I do still have the Achilles, he is doing good. He looks skinnier than my other big fish, but he still eats very well..... juck very picky at what he eats. The others everything, but not him... only algae/seaweed or foods with lots of it, like Formula 2 frozen.

Here is a recent picture with the new aquascaping and the new LEDs to prove that Achilles lives..... Awesome looking fish, but definitely not for somebody new to saltwater or does not have the right equipment suited for this particular fish.

Very nice!! Do you feel the LEDs are making a big difference over the center brace? It's difficult to tell in the pics. The tank looks awesome but curious what your on site experience is.
