Ok how's my progress..

I seriously started upgrading my tank about a month ago..

Originally I had this on my 46g bow front:
Wet Dry w/ U shaped overflow using MagDrive 6
Protein Skimmer
1 900gph Eheim powerhead in the tank
Emperor Penguin Hang on the Back filter
Crappy lighting

Now I have:
Wet Dry w/ 90s version CPR overflow using MagDrive 7
Protein Skimmer
UV Sterilizer
3 MaxiJet 600's on a Wavemaker Pro
Current USA Dual Sattelite 36inch Compact Florescent

Overall the water quality is much better and the lighting is a 4 fold increase, the fan on the light is a little loud but overall it seems to be shaping up nicely. I will post some pictures when I get my digital camera back from the wife...

What else do I need? I think it seems set for a while and I can concentrate on corals/animals. I have some stuff in the tank, but it is still light on coral's and fish.

What would drive what you need would be the corals that your desiring to obtain. Do you have a list of what you have in your tank and a list of what you desire in the tank?
