So... What Do You Think?

This is my 92 gallon bow front. It's been about five months since I started adding corals. There are actually 17 fish here but they are all in hiding due to being night time

More pics to come. I am trying to purchase a new camera and think that this will help with the photos. This was taken with my HTC EVO.

Tank looks pretty nice. I am scared to ask what the 17 fish are in a 92 gallon tank. Even if they were small fish it`s too many. Keep an eye out for your water parameters.

@melosu58 - I actually meant that I have approximately 17 "living fish, shrimp, stars, etc." Not all fish. They are small and tend to hide at night just as they do in the wild. I have a mated pair of clown fish, Coral Beauty Angel, A really pretty Wrasse, Sail Fin Tang, Yellow Tang, 2 small sand sifting stars, a couple of sand sifting snails, a Fox Face, 2 engineer gobies that stay in their dug-out tunnels, a larger blue star (he stays hidden), a feather duster, a reddish looking tube worm and then all of my corals and anemones. So, yes. There are a few things in here but my levels have been perfect for months and besides my usual water changes, I have very little maintenance to do. My skimmers do lots of work along with my sump and refugium. I do have some crabs and such in the refugium as well. All in all, the tank is almost care-free. I'll definitely keep an eye out for the levels though. Thanks for the advice

Beautiful tank! I don't see any tangs though lol. You know they need a larger tank at some point in the future though right? Just checking...official tang police inquiry

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

@ Carey - LOL I know, right? They all hide in the evening before my moonlight kicks on. Just like in the wild. And yes. I know about the space. My friend owns a reef shop near my house and we are able to trade fish and such when need-be. I am just trying to find exactly what I want in this tank before I say "finished". If I ever need to, I have good homes available for these guys. Thanks a bunch for checking it out!
