UNBELIEVABLE! I LOVE the pinks birdnest and the Red Goniopora. I would love to get some frags from you if at all possible. I am speechless it's so pretty!

Thanks Pam, Unfortunately I can't frag the red Goniopora (they don't recover well), but I can order you one. You'll have to come by and see it in person sometime!

I'll be breathing some new life into this thread. I'm planning a serious makeover, re-aquascaping, some new corals, as well as more fish. I'm also re-doing the way the tank is plumbed so I'll be posting my progress here over the coming weeks! I son't know why but setting up/ remodeling a tank is almost more fun to me than just having one.

I hear ya.  It's fun and rewarding to find little things (or big things) to tweak and upgrade a system.

How does that little puffer do in a reef tank?

I used to have one with my freshwater fish, and I saw one the other day in walmart.  I would love to add one to my tank, but didn't think it would be a good idea. 

Edit:  By the way, very nice tank... I love it

Thanks for the comments guys! So here's my first update:

So for you Nick, equipment...

Return Pumps- (2) Rio 32HF pumps at full throttle
Circulation- (2) Koralia 3's but I am changing these out for Tunze Turbelle's with a wavebox
Controller- Digital Aquatics RKE (I will be switching this out to the Vertex Cerebra as soon as it launches)
Lighting- Sunlight Supply Tek 6-54w ATI Bulbs order as follows from front to back:
Purple Plus
Aquablue Plus

Skimmer- Tcfab monster cone (the BIG one!!!!)
Found a pic from just before it went in the sump:

Heating- 500w Titanium Element Heater

RDP Refugium with 4-5 different macro algae

Carbon dosing with the Brightwell Aquatics system (MB7)

David- The puffer does great doesn't bother anyone and just rides the current all day.

Seti007- Thanks! Your tank is amazing as well, I LOVE all the SPS!

I'll be procuring my new coral over the next couple weeks as well as changing the rockscape a little so I'll update as I make more progress.

Thanks! Hopefully I'll make progress faster with the warmer weather. Remodeling one tank and setting up another at the same time is getting to be a bit much LOL

Hey I used to have "Green" Spotted puffers in my Cichlid tank. Back when I had mine they came to Petco as brackish fish and were acclimated to SW.  Now the only time I see them FS is as freshwater fish. 

Do you know of a shop that sells them as Saltwater fish still?
