Welcome to MASA, how about some pics of your sump setup? Your tank looks nice, but I would add some more, better flow pumps inside, something like the Seio M820's. Put one behind the rockwork to prevent dead areas and one facing slightly upwards for surface movement(more oxygen in water). ;)

spot on tobes and i would keep an eye on that green hair algae,it can spread soooo fast
I wouldn't worry too much about green hair algae, cyano is the evil one. Just buy a algae blenny (A.K.A. Lawnmower blenny), he'll sort 'em out.;)

Is your tank cycled yet?

Glad you have a DSB already, depending on how many fish you gonna keep and budget - I would upgrade to a better skimmer, also had one of those till I got the Reeftek TS2. What a difference...

Nice setup, I know Sims also started a Tank similar to yours some months ago, very interseting to know how flow will be inside the tank as water can bounce off nicely in the corners...

mines was also pretty timid at first,but they eventually turn out to be devils,im sure many other guys here have experience with them
