You need more light. That's why all the corals are not brilliant and they are stretched outward as much as possible trying to increase surface area. I would also add a bit more rock, and of course pick a fish more suitable for a 65 gallon tank than a regal tang.

Watch that sand sifting star. They love to eat all the food in the sandbed and then die somewhere in the sandbed.

I would add quite a bit more live rock and build it up. You have nice colors in the tank and your corals look healthy (other than mr x's observation). I have two of the Kessil 360s. They put out great shimmer and give a natural sun streaked look but don't have a very wide footprint.

Yep, build up more rock and the corals will also be closer to the light source which will help. And I completely agree about the tang. That guy will get huge if given the proper tank.

Glad you are asking for advice, but, we all must research what we have in our set up BEFORE we purchase them. The wrong fish in the wrong environment will only lead to death or/and ich. The same with coral conditions, many people post can you id this coral. If we buy a coral and have no idea what it is, how do we know if our tanks can support it. Buying blindly in my opinion is irresponsible. You have the wrong fish in the wrong environment. Not picking on you, but too many people have fish/corals that their system just can not support, and everyone claims they are going to upgrade soon, but very few do. Once again not picking on you, we all must be more responsible keepers of our oceans, or they will soon be gone. We are increasing are part of the problem instead of part of the solution.

Perhaps you could replace the tang with a foxface? Should do ok in a 65 and is a good large centre piece fish...

A kole tang would probably work.

All great advice. The Kole or Foxface are much better fish for you and your tank size. The Kessel should cure your light problems, just start super slow so you don't nuke your corals with too much light.

Lots of water exchanges and a good salt mix and you should be set for the bioload you have.
