yea the sand is different from the white i used to have it kinds makes everything pop! as for plans in the near future i am looking at getting an MP10 as well as my own ro/di also looking into different carbon dosing ideas because i plan to add a lot more sps corals. Maybe ill get a calcium reactor? im looking into this though http://www.marinedep...IFMCHSM-vi.html

i know its kinda experimental and ill probably be trying it on my girlfriends tank to see what kind of results we get

It really shows when comparing your sps in both photos. I like the way monti's look but I think I need to get an LPS and have some success with it before I step up to SPS. I got in trouble (read: lost money and gained frustration) with my first reef by being sold a birds nest as my second coral.
