That's a nice setup! Looks like it's going to be a great SPS tank if that's your end goal :)
Thank you for checking it out! I’m actually a huge fan of Lps so my end goal is a bunch of colorful lps corals with some high end torches. I love lots of visual movement and the torches are so captivating.

I love the deep blue 80 profile. Was close to picking one up a few months ago until I realized I have nowhere to put it :(

Nice tank!
This is my smallest tank I’ve ever had coming from a 6 year old 180 and I must say I’m loving the smaller tank. I’m way more inclined to keep it maintained being able to reach anywhere in the tank. Hopefully you can get some more space. You’d really enjoy this footprint I believe.
 

How many tangs (surgeonfish) do you have in your reef tank?
