Nothing major, but added the new rock piece today (Center). Looks like I still need 1 or 2 more pieces on the right side. otherwise I'm just patiently waiting for the cycle time to pass by (I am only on Day 7):

Well, we added a few things today. A 25 piece clean up crew, a pair of clowns, and we finished off the right side of the tank with 2 new rock pieces.

Not a huge update as I am still patiently waiting for the tank to run through its cycle (I am 3+ weeks in). Frags I put in a few weeks ago seem to be doing just fine as they have been open the whole time. I also have a few shots of some future residents (currently in QT) I thought I would share.

Ugly Phase update (Not terrible but not completely clean yet)

Went to my first Frag Swap ever (although I was not there long thanks to my wife :angry-face:) and was able to grab a few things given my tank has been really stable and everything that has been added so far is alive and healthy!

I know I know, my pictures are awful (but I am working at it:))

The plan is to add my Purple, Blue and 2 Yellow Tangs within the next week or so!

So I participated in the @calikidcorals Live Sale and picked up a few things I thought I would share.

Packing was unreal!

Looking forward to seeing the progress of this. The in-wall design is impeccable.

I went with all caribsea life rock as well. My only tip is to watch your nutrient levels so they don't zero out. Those big tangs will definitely help with that. With all dry rock I had a heck of a battle with dinos. Took a couple months but finally over it.
