Looks good! I just started my 75 not too long ago. Just a thought, have you ever considered mangroves in the HOB? My freshwater tanks with HOBs all have lucky bamboo in them. Makes a cool little addition I feel like. Mangrove typically like pretty high intensity lights from my understanding so being up close to the lights is a plus!

That's a cool idea!
