No questions, but wanted to say it looks great. LOL'd at spoiled brat. Don't worry I'm one too.

thanx for the compliment.... i will attempt to get new pix tonight with all my life in close up and now that i got my lights just about where i want them it looks a bit better...

just an update
all tests have had stable results and live stock ATM has not altered this...
sg at 1.0235
temp 79-81 F

lights are
2x 6500k full spectrum sun
1x 10000k t8 florescent
1x t8 50/50 florescent

20 long sump (about 15 gallons =/- )
skimmer

DT - 50 gallon breeder
all glass top

DIY over flow

live stock
6 monster snails
4 hermit crabs (had 6 but they like to fight a lot)
2x domino damsels
1x blue damsel
1x blue/ yellow damsel
1x small Zoa colony (wipe out survivor)
1x small coral (star polyp? need to look it up my memory is horrible today)[wipe out survivor]
read your whole post. nice start. just a couple of comments. whenever you are going to change your lights you might want to go towards the blue/white, blue spectrum, something 14k or so. The blue spectrum makes the coral colors really stand out or as they say "pop". it also makes the fish more colorful making the tank look beautiful.
consider that if you ever decide to add any new fish , big or small, the damsels will kill them almost without exception. The damsels will probably turn on each other in time too. so at best, if a damsel ever dies you will not be able to add any fish until the last damsel die, unless of course you only plan to keep the new fish for a few days. damsels are very agressive.

goodluck

good luck getting a fish out of an established tank. its not the same as a freshwater set-up.

what he means is that you will probably have to remove all you rocks and drain the tank low to get the fish out. or buy a fish trap and have alot of patients to get the fish out
