I like the hard scape. Lots of open caves for fish to swim through and corals to grow, more surface. Lots of live rocks will help you a lot in the long run with filtration since you only have an AC filter. How big is that AC anyway? Are you gonna get something bigger in the future?

Nice. Please keep updating :).

it might not be bleaching, are the white spots kinda patchy?

 

you don't frag a coral if it's bleaching, do you? you frag it if it has STN or RTN.
