Finally took some pictures. lol Been really busy, lots going on.

The orbits seem to be just the right amount of light for the corals I have. They have all opened pretty much and look pretty good too. I however wouldn't reccomend using the fixture over a deeper tank, just isn't enough oomph to the lights and they most likely wouldnt punch through the water any deeper than mine. I really, really like the fixture though. I will update at a later date when I am sure of what it can keep, but like I said for the most part it seems perfect.
I am also having an issue with water circulation, there is a huge dead spot on the right side of the tank, for now I added a 425 koralia to the back right corner near the sand to keep debris from accumulating. I have the mp10 running at about half power, any higher and the corals blow around too much. I have a tunze on hand that I was thinking of adding but I had hoped the mp10 would be enough, it was perfect for the 24 by 24 cube. Any other thoughts on what I can use for water circulation instead of the mp10?

Anyways, here are the pictures. They are pretty awful though, but it should give you an idea of whats going on in the tank. Oh, and the new yellow headed goby is doing just fine as is the hawk.

Oops, almost forgot. I ordered some inverts from reefs2go. Guess the fourth time is the charm cause this order was all alive and looked good.
I got 100 blue legs
100 nassarius snails
4 white legged hermits
10 nerites
and the coralline coral cluster they sell since I have all dead base rock I needed some purple algae so it can spread
I split the hermits and snails with a girlfriend so I ended up with 50 of each. Put about 15 of each into the 40b and the rest went into the 180g.
The critters were all alive but very very small, but hey, what do you expect for a few cents each I guess.

I"m interested to see how your coralline cluster is. I saw it advertised and didn't know what to think, tbh. Though they are hit or miss at times, they do usually have something over the top different.
