Looks great! Did you use live rock for this tank or dry?
Thanks! Dry rock, but I seeded with a piece of live rock from my lfs and added some stuff from IPSF. Seems to have giving me a good mix of biodiversity. No real "dry" rock issues

With my coming 40 gallon I have thought about taking this same route. I have leftover LifeRock I never used from the 14 and I figured pairing with a nano live rock kit would work. did you have any curing time from the live rock before you used it?

no idea, it was sitting at the LFS's tank for a while. There were some coralline already growing, so I expect it was cured for a while

Any experience in photography?
no experience at all! My first real camera with the a6000, prior to that was just the occasional vacation snap with the phone camera.
