Stand is awesome. I'm not a fan of props, etc., because I prefer the natural look and I've found them to be a PAIN to keep clean. I started with a couple in my FW tanks and now everyone of them is gone.

Having said that, though, I'd kill to have your setup!!!

30 gal standard 55 lbs LR, 60 lb live sand, 10 gal sump/refugium. Urchin skimmer, mag7 pump, 3 x 96W PC combination 10,000K/actinic bulb, 2 blue LED moonlights
SG 1.024, temp 79.5, pH 8.4

Livestock I added:

1 skunk cleaner. 12 hermits: red, scarlet, blue. 15 or so assorted snails. Discosomas, Ricordia, Rhodactis mushroom corals, chaetomorpha (sump), 1 feather duster, Montipora digitata, Montipora capricornis, Montipora hispids. assorted zoos, Xenia, Kenya tree coral, green Sinularia, green star polyps, branching hammer coral, bubble coral, Devil's hand leather. Yellow chromis, purple firefish.

Hitchhikers: the usual suspects :crabs, bristles, urchin, mantis shrimp (now in exile in mantis tank)

List of possible/likely newcomers:

Feather duster. PJ cardinal, Bangghai cardinal, Firefish goby, Clownfish, Neon goby, Yellow watchman goby, Orchid dottyback. Various corals.

i have a wet/dry sump with a uv and soon to be added a protein skimmer
Great call on the skimmer. A good alternative for a tank without a lot of LR in it is to replace the biomedia in the sump with LR rubble. It is a lot cheaper (sometimes free) and will give you the same biofiltration benifits you get from LR. Just a thought. Looks ike your cycle is underway. Any ideas of the fish you want?? Keep up the good work. You could work in interior design...Lando

Some people are like slinkies...they serve no real purpose yet can still bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs!:p
Have a great day! Brian
