Update:

I got rid of the AIO aspect of my build. It just took up too much space and wasn't that practical. I installed a Reef Octopus HOB 2000 skimmer, which works great. I am trying to figure out a solution to add a HOB fleece roller, think I am going to have to DIY something. Even with just the skimmer it is pretty clean, but there is some particulate floating around. I'm hearing mixed things about having the water be too clean, so I'm still pretty unsure about what filtration route I want to take.

-Added 3 trochus snails

-Added 13 clownfish

-Got a bryopsis infestation

-Treated bryopsis with fluconazole

-All 5 snails died leading to an ammonia spike which killed 5 clownfish. Assuming that was likely a side effect of the fluconazole treatment.

-BTA took a trip into powerhead, still in acclimation box healing

-Added 3 black widow BTA's

-Added green BTA

-Added anemone crab

-Added galaxea coral

-Upgraded light to Nicrew 150 Watt

13 clownfish or 3? Tank is looking great though!
