Bitis I believe Andrew is asking for a listing of the different fish, corals, etc. that you currenly have living in your tank. Looks nice by the way.

Thanks....Naso, hippo, kole, Powder blue, yellow, purple, Sailfin. Few clowns...Lots of chromis...Gotta have chromis...Few assorted damsels. from when i first set it up...(Big mistake) Damsels suck in a reef tank...There are also a few other fish as well....There are lots of softies, shrooms, polyps, and stonies, both lps and sps....No probs with any coral except brains and elegance....Damels spit sand all over them and agrevate them...Had to move them to smaller tanks...

I wish i would have painted the back black

I can't tell from your pics, but on my tank - which has an 8 ft. wide wall about 6" behind the tank, I bought a 4x8 1/4" piece of plywood and painted it black and screwed it to the wall.

It looks absolutely great - a black backround that is removable.

Another option = what I did on my QT tank.

- I cut the plywood about the same size as the back and sides of the tank and placed them against the tank.

"I wish i would have painted the back black"

You could also laminate the back side with black acrylic.

Nice tank.

I love how you stacked the rocks in your setup. I just bought a used 90 gallon that is built to the hilt. The tank has been going for over ten years, very stable, lots or coral, calcium reactor, protein skimmer. I love tangs and see you do to, What tangs do you recommend and what will get along with what? Thanks

You can also go to an acrylic supplier and ask for Chloroplast. It is like a plastic cardboard. It comes in different colors. You can attach it to the tank using velcro or double sided tape.
