I updated the pics in the original post, they are much smaller now, should load quickly for most people on broadband.

To answer some questions...

-The tank is just over 8 months old. I have pics from back then all the way to now. Just to give you an idea of the progression, he is the first pic I ever took of my marine tank:

-I do not use any supplements. Just water changes, roughly 10%->15% a week.

-Water paraments have been easy for me to maintain. I did this tank very slowly and it has worked out so far. It was always a goal of mine to have 2 pounds of LR per gallon and a good skimmer for Berlin method filtration. I added the rock in 4 batches until I reached 30+ pounds to meet my goal, and I run the Remora 24/7. I skim wet as well, I feel it gets more waste of of the tank, even if it wastes some water.

-Camera was a Canon 10D that belongs to my friend. I only have a Canon A60, but will upgrade soon
