Looks good. Did you seed it with anything for it to only take 2 weeks? If your parmeters are OK do you have your first fish picked out?

i have no clue how come it's that fast....but i asked about it in here. they said most likely it's cycled. maybe i used live rocks form liveaquaria.com (overnight shipping)...to speed up my cycle. good stuff. i plan to add a fire shrimp 1st

You need to keep some type of bioload on the tank. A fire shrimp will not be enough. If not adding a fish you need to feed the tank a little to keep the bacteria population up.

Throw some Blue Green Chromis in there for initial load
they are cheap and entertaining fish... make sure you do an odd # of them

Tank looks great!!

That's a sweet and simple setup, dude! Hey, we're both CUSA Orbit light fixture owners. Cool. I like your setup. simple and clean.

Ever thought of putting a maroon clown in there or something? (Im just biased of maroon clown. They're my favorite. Don't mind me!)

Also, why not try to add a lawnmower blenny in there?

I give you two thumbs up. What a clean and simple setup! Great start!!
