Thanks guys for the interest. I love new builds, so many opportunities.

I'm gearing up to move the rock and add the extra 50lbs today to the 125g and do a large water change while I'm at it so i took some pictures of course! These are some of my corals that don't get as much photo time as the fish and others so here ya go

I think it is a Flowerpot coral.

Carey, what kind of coral is in picture three? Is it easy to keep? Thank you.

Picture 2 and 3 are both SPS, two is a birdsnest. Both were only a limb or two when i got them, they are doing really well. The last picture is a gonipora, a flowerpot coral. I've been reading that they are hard to keep but so far mine has been doing ok.

I don't target feed any of my corals in this tank at all, I just keep proper water parameters and do water changes.

Thanks!
I've been trying to find the original photos of it when I first got it, it's such a night and day comparison and it's only been about 7 months in the tank.

Currently I'm in the literal middle of re doing my rockwork, just taking a cigarette break. I also realize that I have a plethora of bristleworms so I will be investing in a trap for them next week hopefully. Took the lights down and they came out from under like every rock, 6 are under my one brain coral alone. lol
