Hey Cody, Yes, right now, I have a pair of False percs, a yellow tang, a blue hippo tang, 6-Line wrasse, a scooter dragonette, a bi-color blenny, a neon goby, and a red firefish.
I dont plan on adding any fish as the current system is already overstocked with fish.
I was thinking of slowly moving to sps dominated tank, but I like the softies too. I'm not a big fan of the "balloon animal" corals (frogspawn, Hammer, Torch) so I think I'll just stick with the Pink-tipped Green Frogspawn I have now.
One of my bigger concerns is that I will suffer losses to some of the softies due to the intense increase in lighting. I've actually considered trading or selling off the light fixture for a downgrade to T5s, but then I like the idea of being able to get the SPS corals in the tank.
Another dilemma I'm facing is the possibility of needing to flush the old sandbed due to a recent Pyramid Snail outbreak. But then the population of Pyramids isn't outlandish, and I'm sure some of them would carry over in the rock anyhow. I've been plucking them out as i find them, but it's a daunting task. The new system also comes with a good bed of sand as well, so I guess we'll have to gauge that when the time comes.

I'm afraid the 55g is spoken for. My wife will be getting that tank for her anemones and Gold Stripe Maroon Clowns.
