Old tank

New tank
I just need everything to grow. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with stocking. Current stock is 2 clowns and 1 watchman goby, 1 pistol 1 peppermint I'm liking 6 line, royal gramma, and orchid dotty back. I'm gonna probably add 2 out of the three but not sure which ones and what order.

Update, tank is doing well, but, I'm upgrading again. 125 in wall with 55 sump. I have both tanks, live rock, 3 dimmable eBay LEDs, skimmer (asm g3), mag 9.5. I need sand, and power heads. I really want to go with 2 mp40. I still need to put my sump together and drill tank. So coouple questions. Can I get away with some large korilias, or should I bight the bullet on the vortechs? And with dimmable LEDs, do I need to still raise them high then lower them or just set them about 6" up and dim up and down as needed? Here's a pic of the 40 now

I ordered hole saw and internal overflow from brs. I ordered sand from reef rocks. This should be up and running soon. Only problem, I think the tank I got off Craig's list has more scratches than expected. Hopefully when I clean it's not as bad as I think.
