I like the height you achieved with the corals, I made a mistake when doing mine only half way up. Did you attach the rock together with something? Looks good!

Thanks! No I did not attach the rock with anything but cuss words! lol It is stacked so that nothing (or very little) touches the back wall as well.

Nice tank, how about some more details=tank age, skimmer, sump, fish list, coral list, etc. :)
I set up the tank last summer. Most of the livestock came out of a 24g nanocube that I set up in 2005. My nano was featured in the POTM I think April 05. I bought the whole setup used and then slowly upgraded piece by piece. I replaced the rio return pump with a mag7 and added 3 mj 1200s, two are modded and they are run by a natural wave controller. It works well for the money but its noisy. I modded the coralife pc fixture and added 4 geisman t5s. I am still running the skimmer that came with it which I believe is a coralife. Im not sure what model but it work ok. Just ok. I intend on upgrading that as well.
Fish List-
1 Red Sea Sailfin tang
1 maroon clown (white stripe)
1 mandarin
1 6 line wrasse
1 blue chromis (used to be 7):(
1 blue damsel

I will ad a coral list and some more pics soon.
Thanks for your kind words!
