Looks good,how long has it been up and running. One thing I would watchout for is on that right handside and bottom left handside there’s not a lot of spacing to clean the glass. Might become a headache later on after you add coral to clean that area.

Noticed that, have been thinking of maybe removing some rocks from that side.

 

Tank has been up and running for 12 days.

Nice tank! I am loving the big 40 gallons. Looks like you have some ammonia present in the tank. After only 12 days, I would bet that your tank is still not cycled (the "instant" tank bottles don't work instantly). I would keep an eye on ammonia and nitrites every day and do water changes accordingly.

Tank looks good.

 

One piece of advice- don't overuse carbon. 

 

Using smaller quantities changed every 2 weeks is enough.

Decided to not buy it, instead I might just get rid of the sock all together and put a media basket with some seachem matrix amoung other things.

 

really don’t like the sock
