He must have been commenting on the early pictures when I didn't have a back drop. I took it off to clean it and the back glass yesterday and it definitely needs it!

Here's some updated pics:
Two new additions yesterday a brown acro that I couldn't pass up for $10 and a medium sized yellow tang I've been patiently waiting to add:




Orange Eye Enchino


Big pink white palys that are really starting to spread and multiply:


Blue Orange Rics


Idaho Grape


Green purple yumas have gone from 3 to 9:


metallic green zoa


Xenia trying to take over the tank I have a forest of it now in a couple spots in the tank


Tie dyed zoa that went from 2 to 4 polyps recently. Radioactive dragon eyes that are starting to spread and an orange monti


The torch coral I have had since I start first aquapod in summer:


Bam Bams


Bonus mushrooms, I was rearranging the reef and found these metallic blue purple mushrooms on the back of a rock:

They are really nice, I'm enjoying this 90 gallon reef much more then I ever did my 55 freshwater. Lot more money and work involved but it's worth it.

I got lazy and did the tank first and then never finished the sump. I have a HOB dual overflow for 1200gph, a 25-30 gallon acrylic tank with a 1270 gph Blue Line return pump. At this point though the tank is running well I may just skip the sump.

Hopefully the tang does OK it ate frozen carnivore cube like crazy yesterday.

tangs are generally herbavores.

Yeah that surprised me. Yellow tangs I've had in the past only ate leafy greens.
