They are about 9 years old now and spawn just about every month! the yellow tanng is about 6 years, the chromis are about 10 years old.
As far as understocking a sps reef you are correct unless if your filtration is oversized. My skimmer is HUGE for my tank so i can stock just about any amount of fish i'd like to keep as far as bioload is concerned. When i feed my tank, corals and fish have to eat fast otherwise the skimmer will remove the food almost as quickly as i put it in.
The tank was designed by me and was built by a local aquarium builder here wheere i live.
The camera i use is a point and shoot cannon G9. other than resizing the pictures thats how the pics come out of the camera. In real life the colors are alittle nicer in my opinion. The camera has a hard time adjusting to the intense and spectrum of the lights.

those are some nice shots for a point and shoot. you could try adjusting the white balance on the camera if it has that option. put something as white as possible in the tank (under the lighting) and use that as your control. a piece of PVC works well as its aquarium safe and pretty white. this will allow for more "truer" colors of your corals.
saw you on reefcentral :P nice build! your getting some action in this (kinda) dead forum. cmon guys! beautiful tank!
Subject: Larry LaPrise dead at 93
With all the sadness and trauma going on in the world at the moment, it is worth reflecting on the death of a very important person, which almost went unnoticed last week.
Larry LaPrise, the man that wrote "The Hokey Pokey" died peacefully at the age of 93. The most traumatic part for his family was getting him into the coffin. They put his left leg in. And then the trouble started.
