Thanks for the kind words! I really wanted to achieve a simple/clean look, but I just noticed the cord hanging freely in the picture! haha

Added a few pieces of live rock to the tank, along with rubble rock in the sump. I don't see any PVC now! :D

I'm still not sure what I want to stock, I wanted to do sexy shrimp but I would be paranoid of them getting sucked into my sump. For coral I was thinking mainly zoas. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

Well I made it easily adjustable, wont know how high to keep it until I have anything in the tank. What do you think, too close? This is my first time using PAR30

Added a clean up crew today, consisting of small turbo snails and hermit crabs. Here is a picture of a hermit perched on a ledge, with a turbo in the foreground. (Its exciting having movement in my tank after the work put into it!) :D

Epic tank. Definitely has to be a contender if you get it filled and growing nicely!

Thanks for all the compliments! Let me know what you think I should stock, as I've yet to decide! Majority in the contest seem to be doing Sexy Shrimp, so I was thinking a single Pistol Shrimp.

The black piece is nothing more than wood painted black. I used it to mount the clamp (it didn't bend enough to attach to the shelf), and it also added height.

Yeah I'd go with a pistol shrimp and maybe a jaguar goby if you can fit it in there. I already had two sexy shrimp and one already died.
