This is pretty much what the whole tank looks like now except it was taken a couple days ago and since then I shoved the rock pile a couple inches back and moved a couple plants out front to give the fish some cover.

The Cory's get spooked when I bring up my phone to take a picture so I have yet to get them together in one shot even though they spend most of their time in a group. This was my bettas first encounter with one after putting them in the tank.

I'm actually worried about my betta right now as he appears a bit bloated around the belly. I found out I've been overfeeding him so I hope that's what is doing it. First picture is about 4 days back and the second one is a couple minutes ago. I hope I didn't burn up anyone's bandwidth so I made these last two smaller.

Added a couple red scarlet reef hermits to the CUC. Love these little dudes.

Some nice looking fish Atticus. What type of Cory are those. I love the spots.

My Kuhli Loach is not too shy at the mometn but i guess that after the LFS lights out in my tank probably seems like night for it when it lived with streetlights as a nightlamp. It has two sets of triangle dots. It mostly hangs out in the cave structure that has never had a fish show interest before, but does laps and will parade along the front of the tank to watch me or it's reflection. I'm just glad it hasn't decided to hide full time. Neon Tetras are seeming to do little dances/fights. They pair up and spin in tight circles together then move off and start the process again elsewhere. Not sure if this is fighting, breeding behavior or what. I will google and see. The NT's aren't schooling as much anymore but the HR's are. I'm pretty happy with my fish selection but may change my mind if i need to catch them.

Fish watched, small feed for 36g and minute feed for 20g. HR's taught the NT's to feed on floating food. I had to sink individual flakes last night.

Edit. Whenever the Kuhli comes out for a prowl he gets a following of curious NT's and leads a little parade.

They are Sterbai Corys. It might not show up in that picture but their ventral fins develop a light orangish color that may also color their belly a bit that is pretty nice. I've never owned corydoras before and have found that their personality is a great addition to their spotted skin.

I was attempting to edit my previous post because my first picture didn't seem to show up on my end. The post was made through the aa app and shows up on there but I can't view it on here yet. Kind of strange but oh well. Here's the first picture that wasn't appearing for me:

I love the variety of inverts that you can get for saltwater and your hermit crab looks pretty nice. Congrats on TOTM too. It's a nice thriving tank you have.

Repost from my 20g long planted thread...
Finally finished the rescape late last night (2:00 AM EST). Here are close ups of the left and right sides:

Took a little while to clear up. I took some manzanita DW from the shrimp tank. I don't think they will miss it. I might have gone overboard with the red. We will see when if fills out. Here is a FTS:

Here are the "extras" I pulled out and put in a newly setup 6.6g tank. About 30+ dwarf sag, 10+ crypt wendtii red, 5-6 broadleaf chain swords, 3-5 cabomba stems, moss on DW, and at least a handful of water lettuce:
