So, so far there is nothing new to update the tank with.....it is just collecting dust. My goal is to have the tank up and running by the very end of January, but we will see about that, lol.

In other news, I have not really been around much this week, no need to worry though, I have just been VERY busy. I will certainly be on this weekend though!

Yes, it is currently in its permanent space. I just need to have it on the stand correctly, level it, and it is kind of sideways now, lol.

I cannot wait!!

I don't blame you for messing with the cool stuff, lol. I bet you are starting to get very, very itchy to start the 90g now!

yeah the problem with NPS tanks is the feeding schedule some of the corals need like a 24hour feed regiment. Although, there is a product out there that will constantly release food i am sure its a fairly sophisticated piece of a equipment im making sound simple, but i think it would be cool to have a piece of the reef that most people don't see. Anyways i am not to sure about stocking options because truthfully you can put soo much in there lol i would not know where to begin i assume you gonna get some tangs, some clown (maybe some True Perculas) but coral wise i might beable to give ya list once i find my one spreadsheet lol.

Regal angel will nip corals and clams, Achilles tang is very expensive and very difficult to keep, royal gramma CAN be aggressive. Other than that your list sounds good to me.

Nice suggestions! From the list, I think I really like the Yellow Tang, Firefish, some kind of Anthias, some kind of designer Clown (I like the ones you mentioned). I would only get one new Clown because I already have one in my 55g that is moving over. I also really like the Wrasses and Midas Blenny. I may go with some Chomis too.

Thanks for the suggestions!

My setup is going to be very similar to Carey's, almost exactly, lol. That means an Eshopps slimmer and sump, rio return pump, and a cpr continuous overflow.
