Making progress - 65 gallon build

Hello all,
Im somewhat new to the salt water tank field. It took me aproxx. one year to get to this point. With budget constraints and being somewhat picky about live rock and placement. i have finally got my rock the way I want it. Plenty of open holes and caves for fish and critters to swim through.

My stock list :

( 2 ) yellow tail damsels
( 2 ) ocellaris clown fish
( 1 ) one spot foxface ( refugee from sister/brother-in-law )
( 1 ) cleaner shrimp
( 1 ) red legged hermit
( 10 ) blue legged hermits
( 4 ) banded troches snails
( 20 ) astrea snails
( 10 ) nassarius snails
( 1 ) fancy nassarius snail
( 2 ) tiny starfish ( hitch-hikers )

Equipment :
65 Gallon tank
20 gallon sump
mag 6 return
ais 90 aggressor skimmer ( aquatic life systems )
koralia 750 circulation pump
coralife aqualight ( 4 X 65 )
( 2 ) white
( 1 ) actinic
( 1 ) 50/50
I have been learing alot and wishing i had done a few things different after reading the forums for sometime now. My wish list is to replace the broken built-in moonlights, build a refugium ( so that i may have a safe place for pods to grow for a Mandrin later in the future ).
Any suggestions or comments would be apreciated.

Dom -

Hiya. those are some pretty neat looking clowns you got there, are they just misbarred perculas? Tank looks good btw. Are those rocks really stable, did you use anything to glue them together?

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

When I got them they were orange, then slowly darkened. Added an early pic. ( using phone, hope it works )

The rock isn't glued, but placed so that it is sturdy. Never know if I may want to change it in the future
