Pretty excited. At least two of the live rocks have coralline on them. Will definitely forgo the Purple Up and let it do it's "thing".

And I'm last to the party. Wasn't looking for a reef tank in the FOWLR section of the forums. Looks pretty awesome for 125 bucks! Get some macro rock when you order your ATO.

What kind of corals will you be keeping in there?

Sorry about the confusion. Spend most of my time in the FOWLR forum and noticed that there is a lot of reef posting, so didn't really think about it. Also, the $125 was for the ATO. The entire system was quite a bit more. The Mrs. said she wanted to spend on good equipment if we were trying a reef (gotta love her, she supports all of my hobbies).

As for coral, I definitely want a green bubble coral and a fire coral. I haven't gotten much beyond that at this point. Been in the FO world awhile but a total newbie when it comes to reefs. Working with a top-notch LFS, but open to suggestions. Just don't want anything too difficult right off the bat.

My suggestion-

War coral
Acans
Torch
Hammers
Yuma mushrooms
CAndy coral
Toadstool or Fiji leather
Symposium
Galaxia
Etc. lol

Hit up liveaquaria. If it has difficult under care, stay away from it lol. Flowerpots are one i'd avoid right away that are more difficult.

Sps. Lol

I have so many more recommendations. The colors out there are amazing. I'm a fan of bright colors and flowy corals personally. Lol

Depends on the clam. Maxima require a lot of light versus the crocea that can stay in the sand bed. You can't have a copperbanded butterfly or angel tho or say bye bye to the clam
