New tank

New tank has been up and running for little more then two. My first reef tank so starting out small. 35 gallon rimless. 36x18x12. Two oscelaras black clown, Duncan coral, rose anemone, and a frogspawn. Here is a picture of the tank. So far so good. I have had a FOWLR tank for years. Click image for larger version

What kind of lighting is over the tank? Any other plans for it in terms of coral or other livestock?

Im curious about the lighting too... it might be the camera but to me that looks awfully dim.

Picture was taking when the lights were ramping up. Lighting is a current 36" marine led. Upgrading next week to a Radion xr
30 gen 3. Should have went that route from the beginning. Even though what I have in the tank is doing good.

Make sure you acclimate to the new light carefully. The marineland leds are garbage and can't support anything. Then tossing the radions, which are top of the line and can keep the most light demanding coral in the sandbed. When I upgraded from a 4 bulb t5ho to my radions I burned 500 dollars worth of coral to death. So start with them turned low and slowly work your way up.

I think I should also point out that the tank really should be leveled out a little more. Especially because it doesn't have a top trim. There's a lot of extra stress on the joints of the tank already and having an uneven tank on top of that is just a recipe for disaster imho.
