I'll post more photos once it's up and running. Thanks again this site has been most helpful!
Are you doing fish only or fish only with live rock? Live rock or base rock is pretty much required in sw as it's your main filtration.

Live rock for sure. I have about 20 pounds purchased uncured and a friend giving me some out of his tank the is cured. I will wait until the tank does well for a few months and the fish stay healthy then invest in the best lighting and other things that I need for coral. Will it hurt having sump and protein skimmer even though I have no coral?
