I like it. What are you planning for it? What lighting do you have?

It is rimless but its made out of glass. I am using a power filter, power heads, and live rock for the filter. Right now I'm not totally sure yet! I really like gobies, so a few of them along with maybe a flame angel, a wrasse and something else

Ive got a flame pretty cool fish, they just say to keep an eye on em in a reeftank. Only problem ive had so far was with an acan, i think the flame was just picking around it though, would just get stressed out so i sold that one. Wrasses are neat fish just need to have a cover of some sort as they can really be jumpers, lost a six line when i first started up.

Thats good lighting for fish only tank, unless you plan on a predator tank, down the road you might decide to add a few corals?

Tank looks good ..
You could easily keep mushrooms and rics under those lights , ,probably zoas and duncans and some colt coral and leathers but an angel will pick those to death ,,i know this from experience...My angels never touched my shrooms or rics though
