I am eternally jealous of your skunk clown.

 

I wish I'd got skunk clowns :P

 

You've got some lovely coral in there. It'll be a real treat watching it all mature.

 

EDIT: And while I'm thinking of it, I can't help but notice you've got a Marineland Stealth heater... I assume you know this but they've been re-called for 'sploding and burning stuff.
