I'm assuming that Kermit there is not in the 180 right?

Looks amazing! How do the "Dark" sides do where the light doesn't really reach? I notice it looks like you have some tree sponges on the side - that's a pretty smart idea.

I saw the tank during the reef tour.  Those pictures are spectacular but it still doesn't do it justice.  You have to see it in person.

Thanks everyone, I'll try to answer everyone's questions.

disneymania- Yes he is one of my most peaceful fish. In fact he get's bossed around by my tangs and clownfish. 

Jwoo- The dark sides do quite well. I have arranged the tank so that corals need less light the further out you go. So on the ends you will find things like black and yellow sun polyps, various sponges, gorgonians, dendronepthias and the like. However I do plan on adding 2 PAR38 LED lights, one for each end soon. Kermit is in a smaller tank next to the 180 which is plumbed into the system so they share water and filtration. He also has several corals in with him (leathers, xenia, sun polyps, zoanthids etc.)

Mike- Thanks! Your shots were the amazing ones! I am excited to see how they turn out!

I love the pink birdsnest and the spider sponge and the blue jaw trigger is awesome. Beautiful tank. I hope mine looks half that nice some day.

Beautiful tank!  I like the idea of having darker sides for lower light corals.  Makes for a really nice effect.  How often do you feed all of your sun corals?
