It has been quite a while since I updated my thread. So long that I cant post any more replies. Sorry folks, but I injured my shoulder and with surgery this kinda took a back seat.
Anyway, after the seemingly eternal fishless cycle I finally have my tank up and running. I have 7 fish in it so far, 2 blue/green chromis, 1 pajama cardinal, 1 banggai cardinal, 1 sunrise dottyback, 1 sharkhead goby and 1 caribbean pygmy angel. I have a clown goby in quarantine that is doing great and will be joining the big tank in about a week. I plan on getting 2 clowns, 1 mediteranean if I can find one and 1 black one. I also have 3 emerald crabs and several turbo and margarita snails as cleanup crew.
Thanks to 2 frag swaps, a friendly associate at a local LFS
(he gives me polyps that have fallen off his frags for sale as long as I buy something else) and 2 stores with GREAT pricing I have 30 coral frags in the tank and growing nicely.
Here are a few pics of my tank inhabitants:
