Hi.
I am building a IM Fusion 40.
(Waiting on a stand).

Original plan was to build a lps dominate, but now thinking of using the top couple of rock "branches" for a couple of sps after everyone is stable.

Lightly mixed reef if you will.

I want to keep it very simple so I am going TRY, and only go with a hand full of corals, not so cluttered.

This has been a slower build than I wanted, but I am being very patient to get all the equipment in place before this gets wet (lessons learned)....hopefully next week.

Opinions / criticisms much appreciated on this on, as I am asking more advice this go around.
Thanks-

Thanks.
Took a long time to build it into any kind of a flow pattern and keep it stable.

Any ideas on what you're looking to stock in terms of fish and specific corals?

Keep us updated on your progress!

For fish I haven't totally decided.

Would like a clam or two after established.

Corals, I am thinking;
top branches- a couple acros in center and right a purple monti on top left.

Bottom shelf off to left, maybe ricodea or chalice.

Ive been looking at a dry tank to long and change my mind like every day. Ha!

Not a lot of space in this display.
