Starting 10Gal SW (pics)

Hey everyone iv started my 10 gallon SW and here are pics of what it looks like. I am currently waiting for some more money so i can buy the live rock. I ended up returning a light i previously purchased which was to small for the tank so i returned it and ended with a perfect size for my tank but still wouldnt fit right so i bought legs for it and i actually like it better above the water like it is rather then sitting almost on top of the water.
Here are the pics.

OT, Here is a list of nano-reef safe corals. In your tank, depending on the lighting you'll be getting, you may only be able to keep some softies:

Cabbage Leather
Chili Coral
Colt Coral
Finger Leather
Green Star Polyps (GSP)
Mushrooms
Nephthea
Pom Pom Xenia
Pulsing Xenia
Various Zoanthids

Your cuc will consist of various snails/crabs. I recommend some Astreas, Nasarrius, hermits.

The following is a list of potential inmates who can live inside smaller tanks, ranging from miniature pico-reefs to 10gs :

-Blue Neon Goby
-Catalina Goby [cold water]
-Clown Gobies
-Eviota Gobies
-Panda (Clown) Goby
-Redhead Goby

Most salt mixes recommend about a half cup per gallon. So that would be 5 cups. I've found with my mix that I need 6 cups for 1.026 in 10g. Hope that helps sort out your SPG.
