Sweet, just one more question, with your skimmer and heater, I assume they are both in the sump. How do you keep the wires from the blocking the full hood on the bio cube? Can the hood close all the way, is there an extra hole built in the hood to allow wires out of the sump area? Thanks.

There should be 2 slots/notches on the back of the hood. Mine has one on each side. You may have to "pop" out the tab or something, IDK as mine was already "slotted". Check your owners manual or just look closely at the back of the service lid/hinge area.

immm sooo excited... checked this morning and i had zeros for both ammonia and N02... double checked now after adding more ammonia at 4:30 this morning and they are zeros again!

now the big question is first additions and other levels

need to wait for the R/O unit to fill up again to wash my test tubes to fill up.... so lets get to the other part first

first additions... my plans for the tank is to get some other soft corals and maybe LPS as i advance.. as for fish i was thinking about this

2 common clowns
a clown goby (is it compatible?)
1-2 fire fish

inverts
10ish turbo snails
2-3 cleaner shrimp (too little?)
4 scarlet hermits
and maybe a serpent star or urchin down the line.. but thats not for quite a few months.

first thing will be the clowns and some turbos... any comments ideas... telling me how stupid i am? lol

Congrats!

I'm heading out to the LFS in about 15 min to get inverts and some chromis. Looks like you beat me after all!

haha yeah... the LR was already cured... so i had a bit of an advantage.... is it normal for the hermits to ride on the turbos backs?

also the bristtle worms.. they only come out i assume all night because i only see them when i turn the lights on...

T-6 days till i get my common clowns (levels permitting of course)

Compatiblity question?

i know most urchins toppling corals over is a major issue.. but i was just wondering what would be the best choice for my tank

i really like long spined urchins and pinqueshin urchins... but are either of these terrible choises?

also. serpent stars. recomended or not? id really like to have one but if its indangering my reef.. i can live without it... or if there is any other star that is reef safe.

also when is it safe to add some more mushrooms and polyps?

Nice looking tank so far I would move the bubble coral up and to the right (looks like a crevice available there?) because there will eventually be physical contact with the frogspawn.
