My month old Bio Cube 29

Well, it's coming along good. The tank seemed to cycle rather quickly. I had a two week period of getting brown diatoms, but that seems to have settled for the most part. I used 16 pounds of live rock, 6 of dry rock, 10 pounds of live sand and 15 of regular. I have upgraded the standard PC lights to steve's LED retro fit kit along with the moonlight kit. I have a tunze power head, in tank's media basket, UV sterilizer ( I got a good deal on one which is why I got it. I know it's not needed). Today came my Intank fuge basket and led light (waiting on the Chaeto to come next week), I also had the flimsy Bio Cube Skimmer but it stinks, so Im going to go with an Aquatic Life 115 (again overkill and not needed I know, but what the heck). I have some soft corals for the most part, a pair of black ocs clownfish and a dwark hawkfish. Some snails, red and blue legged hermit's, an emarld and sally lightfoot crab. Looking to add two more fish down the line.

These pics are actually like 10 days or more, old. It looks a little different again.

The goby's buddy, keeps rearranging his cave
