Hi guys
Tank been set up for 18months now, I'll add photos below. Would love some feedback if the corals look ok, and some ID on them please. All coral is from the Dampier archipelago off the north western Australian coast.

Equipment:
Waterbox peninsula mini 25
Stock return pump, prime hd 16 reef led (was originally a cheap pop bloom led for 1st 16months), aqua excell nano skimmer (identical to eshopps but from Australia), removed filter sock media basket in 1st chamber with blue plant reef fx, sponge, seachem matrix, heater etc , VGA rfg , sicce nano power head but got a jabao wave maker on order. Anyway take a look please and provide comments if you notice anything that doesn't look right. Would also love ID on the big green coral on sand bed front left as it's the 1st coral I bought. It's started loosing flesh from bottom up few months back, I couldn't work out why as water tests were all good. I didn't feed it for first 12months, just water changes every week, so start feeding it and replaced the pop bloom led to prime 16hd and the receding flesh seems to have stabilised for now. Thinking it was the light?

Livestock:
Brown scomos tang, bi colour blenny, yellow banana wrasse and 6 line wrasse. 6 trochus snails, 5 zombi snail's, 1 stromaus snail, 1 sand sifting starfish
Corals I'm no good at identifying
Green mushroom corals
Red mushroom corals
Red acan
No idea what the corals on the 1 rock in 4th photo are (possibly pallys, a green thing and a little plate thing)

Here's a bit of an build thread update for my waterbox. Changed the scape slightly in front left corner, moves the rock with palys down to sand bed to stop them spreading across my main rocks. Bought a autoaqua smart ato G2 lite which I'll see if I can setup this weekend

Little update

Put new cabinet together and did the transfer/lift today. Went smoothly, drained most of the water and did a quick lift with all livestock still in tank

Just got a bit of cable management to tidy up now and it's all sorted , then I'll look at setting up the ATO and hide the water chamber inside the cabinet
