Very nice scape.Still only 3 months in and migrated some tester corals over from my old tank. A few fish are doing well but I had a copperband I could never get eating (not unusual but I think the lack of hiding spots contributed to stress) and a small convict tang that I found stuck on an MP40 one morning after seemingly being very healthy.
The ridge and arch rock formation in the center is at least 4 inches from the front and back of the tank. The formation is great for detritus removal and will be good for raising flow for SPS but I don’t think most fish are gonna love it. I am banking on when mature SPS colonies fill in a lot of that space it’s going to create more natural hiding spots and overhangs.
It will take some time as in a few years to fill in with colonies from frags.
I started with live rock which speeds up the process and I had coral in and growing at 2-3 months.
I have a convict tang in my 120 and would not put one in again.
IMO they need a minimum tank size of 6'.
They never stop moving.
My tomini is much more suited for the 120.
