92g corner build

Hi all, I just signed to this site today. I recently just got back into reef keeping from a long absence in the hobby. I started a 92g corner tank. Figured I would share the build with everyone.

I added 75lbs of rock. It was spilt about half and half with base and live rock(cheaper). This was the first attempt at the scape before I had sand.

I hung the lights with nylon coated steel cable about 7 inches above water.

I ran tank for about 4 weeks before levels reached 0. Then I got a diatom bloom.

The tank has been running a little under 2 months now and there have been some additions along the way. I have added a clean up crew of 50 snails and 20 hermits, a watchmen goby and tiger pistol, some mushrooms, and a couple fragged pieces from a friends tank.
