Red Sea Max 130 Build

Hey just got a red sea max today from a guy off of craigslist. and have started to put it together and decided to make a thread on it. So It is a 34 gallon version 130 (I don't know how much sand is in it but it is like 5 inches thick) over 40 pounds of lr two baby lps and one kind of a mushroom thing... Oh and LOTS of aiptasia I have started to kill it with joes juice and aiptasia x. But I need to buy some more already.
stock:
2 black percula clowns (gonna breed them the store i got them from was breeding them so thumbs up for that)
1 sea urchin
1 flame angel
1 pistol shrimp
Some hermit crabs A lot of them are empty shells but some have snails lol
And on like scooter thing? I don't know what it is but i think i am going to get rid of it.

Future stock list:
Starfish
Green or red mandarine
goby

And I will be getting those if anything dies. I have a couple mods by stevie t with the skimmer and filter and will get pics of them so you can see.
I will try to get pics up of the filling and the lr getting moved in

I figure why kill off free food! The shrimp will be great members of the tank for years to come anyway.

My first anemone was a bubble tip and I love it. Though i wish I bought a rose variety instead of brown.

Is it hard to take care of? Do you know if black percula clownfish like bubble tip? I have seen those and they are very cool.
