Carey, I am ordering the RKE today. Bulkreefsupply gave me a 10% coupon off to make it 404.

Great timing with the conversation today. I think I will be happier with this controller. The apex may have some easier presets but once the rke is programmed there isn't that much of a difference.

Getting the trim fixed later on today or tomorrow. The latches for the front access are not even.
Nice tank. I am glad you fish are doing well, they looks great too.

Thank you.They seem more active in this tank, but that is probably because it such a small area and they are trying to swim the same amount as if they were in a tank twice this size.

All fish has been transferred to the tank!!

The new additions-coral beauty pair, doctor tang and atlantic blue tang are doing great. Had to wait until all tangs and angels were ready for the tank because I needed all of them put in there the same time.

Will posts new pics tomorrow.

Here is a pic of tank with metal halides.

Lost male flame angel, I guess large coral beauty was tired of getting chased by tank bully. Small flame and coral beauty are doing great, not bothering anyone and swimming around.

Still need to aquascape badly. I have some rock in refuge I need to add.

Reefkeeper Elite is still in the box. Maybe next week when the in laws visit I will set it up.

i think about 100 pounds of rock would help that tank immensely.

I was trying to have minimal rock but even when I have bridges with this it didn't look good. Adding around 70lbs in the next week or so

cool. it's going to be good for the parameters too. you could stock more fish with the rock than without.

And fish look happier with more rock. Fish really love hiding places.

Thank you for the advice and opinion.
