Great start to your tank!

Couple of things. Skip the sea apple, not a good idea. They can and will eventually die and poison the tank. They are cool as heck but just not a good inhabitant.

I'm a reef nut and love the SPS corals. One thing you are going to have to look at is upgrading your lighting. It looks like standard lights on your tank. Those will not support corals. Also getting those tops off the tank will help keep your PH stable by allowing the needed O2 exchange at the surface.

I think I mentioned before that you will want to look at upgrading to a sump system. Hang-on-the-back overflows will take care of getting the water out of the tank and into the sump. Adding a refugium with lots of macro algae and some LR along with a sand bed will aid in filtration. The canister filters just don't do the job for a reef tank. Also a skimmer is a must IMO.

I'm looking forward to following your thread!
