Don't get an urchin or you won't have any purple at all. Mine mowed it off the glass in sheets it seemed like.

Just a few equipment shots on the tank I've got everything running on random wave mood at 90-100% everything seems to be handling well. I also have another mp10 in the rock work as well as a 1200 gallon return pump

I also have a 340gph power head in the sump as well

Ok so I've been absent for a while... I got busy with life and neglected the tank a bit... and it started to show. I have never been one to test my water I just thought it wasn't necessary. Boy was I wrong. I had a outbreak of green hair algae and nitrates and phosphates through the roof. So I tested my water and did some major changes. I have since done a few large water changes and taken some rock out of the display to cure/ kill off some algae. So today I changed out my t5 bulbs and did another 15 gallon water change. I lost sight of the goal and got lazy and it showed. I lost a few coral and learned some lessons. So here are some pics now that everything is a little more happy.
