First reef tank

29g Coralife Biocube
(2nd chamber refugium with life rock rubble and chaeto, lit by Coralife T5 mini aqualight)
36w Actinic Blue
36w 10K Daylight
.75w Lunar Blue LED bar
264 gph main pump
Coralife 250 gph circulating pump

2 inches life sand
21.5 # life rock

1 X Oc Clown
1 X Chalk Bass
2 X Peppermint Shrimp (completely cleared tank of Aptasia in 6 days)
2 X Emerald Crabs
7 X Turbo Snails
1 X Bumblebee Snail
10 X mixed Blue Legged and Scarlet Hermit Crabs
1 X Hariquin Brittle Star

2" x 1" Xenia frag (isolated)
2" tall Kenya Tree
2 X 15-20 polyp Zoa frags
4" X 6" Zoa colony
1 green Mushroom frag
2 red Mushroom frags
2 blue-ish Mushroom frags
3" X 4" Green Star Polyp colony (isolated)
2" X 3" frag of something that looks like Green Star Polyp, but no green and finer tentacles on purple mat (isolated)

I plan on this being a soft coral tanks: zoas, pallies, mushrooms mainly, maybe a few LPS for some pop. May add a firefish or goby/blenny.

Thoughts, opinions and critiques are welcome.

Sounds like a solid setup.

Have any pictures? How long has the system been up?

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
