    The fact that your dsb is running for so long, definately helped your display. Nice rockscape. Just one thing though, your electricity (lights) are seriously close to the water surface

    Tank is looking good.Awsome aquascaping :)
    1.How high are the lights from the water surface?
    2.Add reflectors to give you a more even light distribution.
    3.Place your heater in the sump.
    4.Stick on ABS sheeting to the back of your glass (will look cool)
    5.Try and siphon the detritus from under your LR to avoid nitrate issues.

    Live stock looking very healthy, one question. Why the Bare Bottom, I can understand for SPS[even then i struggle] but your corals wont enjoy a low nutrient system?
