When I was looking at this tank I just kept thinking about all the "extra" equipment I wanted and then just snapped out of it and figured I would try stock everything (even the bio-balls) since the tank was $280.
I figured if I clean the bio-balls by floating them in water change water (the stuff I just dump down the drain) then they will surely stay clean of fish/coral waist and act exactly like live rock rubble. I also didn't have nearly enough live rock rubble and I didn't feel like dishing out $50 (and about the same in gas) for aptasia infested rubble from the LFS.

Corals I hope to add to this tank in the next few weeks/months
Kenya tree coral.
I think for fish I want to get a small school of blue/green chromis (Chromis viridis), Maybe a school of four or six not sure yet.
And I may break my stock bio-cube mind set and DIY a protein skimmer when I get the school of fish.
And on to the pictures. The tank has only had water in it for about five days.
