Long Overdue Update!
Well the tank is progressing nicely, I have added 10 blue legged crabs, 5 Nerite snails and 2 other snails that I forgot the name of.
My son and I picked out a pair of Clowns that have been added. Been trying to get a picture of them but they are small!

Woot! LED upgrade came in! Talked with Dave over at NanoBox and upgraded the Biocube hood to the 32G Nanobox retrofit. Probably one of the easiest main upgrades to do. Installation was a breeze. Literally took 20 minutes, taking my time. The LED is controlled via the Bluefish mini app... Excellent features and options.

I apologize for the delay in updates. New baby was born and time got away from me. Anyway, I had some temperature issues and lost my SPS but my Duncan is growing nicely. The acans are quite happy, reaching out for food. I recently added a purple dart fish which I haven't seen seen yet(literally added it on 9/14). I changed up my lighting a little bit to whats called LPS+ on the bluefish controller.

Upgraded to a MP10w, awesome little pump. Moves alot of water in the tank. I am still having an issue with some algae but other than that the tank is doing great. Coraline is starting to grow and spread on my liverock.

Well got the MP10 situated, moving tons of water! The LED intensity has been brought down a great deal due to how powerful it is.

Some tank inhabitants! (Sorry for the blue
