One month update

Well guys its been a month and we are still a work in progress. I added 12 green chromis because I love the schooling thing. Its funny though because there were 7 in one cubical and 5 in another cubical at the LFS. They all hang out but at night the pack splits 7 on one side of the tank the other 5 in the back of the tank.
So far no ammonia spikes since the transfer. Did a wc last week and one week after the wc no off the chart parimeters.
I added a digital temp reader and notice that the actual temp in the daytime is 80.1, at night 79.1. The temp on the chiller cools the water down to 78 deg. like clock work. Interesting that the temp has a differential of 1 to 1 1/2 deg. I'll keep an eye out.
Aaptasia amemones!!! Nothing seems to work! Tried red sea, and other brands, they don't seem to work. So for this problem I added 10 pistol shrimps. So far three days and all five visable aa are still alive.
How long should I give them before going the copperband butterfly route?
Anyhow one of you guys said that since I was adding a lot of corals that I should post a FTS.
My white balance is still not measuring I feel correctly because it strips away most of the blue color from the tank and a 180g without a really true wideangle lense has its challenges.
Let me know what you guys think.
FTS

You say you added "pistol" shrimps for the aptasia????

They don't do aptasia. Didja mean "pepppermint" shrimps?

Tried Joes Juice?

Beautiful tank. Yeah, me too - I'll be watching for the 180 to 500g Journey thread.
