I just had a minor thought/suggestion... the place where you have the return from the sump coming into the tank, currently the nozzle in the water is directed towards the side of the tank with the overflow box. You might point that the other direction (and slightly down, if you don't end up kicking up sand doing so), to try and minimize the amount of water that gets pumped into the display and goes immediately back down the overflow into the sump.

Like I said above, this is extremely minor, but the thought occurred so I figured I would share it. The way it's currently set up, there's probably very little water that ends up making that short-circuit path anyways, but if you pointed it the other direction, it would be even less

Exclamation update 04/19/2008

Hey Everyone I have updated my tank this evening I have got 79lbs of live rock, also a 48" 260 watt Power Compac lighting (4-65 watt) 21" Straight Pin bulbs with led lunar lights. " also the guy I bought it from just gave me The 3 small fish are Damsels and the larger one is a Green Chromis, said they were pretty hardy fish and with all the live rock I should be fine and shouldn't die or have any problems.. I also got snails will either be Nerite, Cerith, Trocchus or Turbo there was prob 6 of them, not sure what the mix is, also aprox 10 hermit crabs I am pretty sure they are blue leg hermit crabs. Now what everyone has been waiting for.. What it looks like!! These are night time photo's so bare with me till the morning or day time when I can get better pics for evryone!!

I just noticed after uploading the pictures, the 3rd last picture has a coral or a nem it looks like, can anyone tell me what that is? and what I should do about it? Also any recommendations to anything to my tank would be great!

Thank You Guys
Enjoy!!!

So far so good. I would suggest that you remove the damsels prior to adding other fish. These little fish are extremely territorial and cause much unnecessary stress on you following fish additions.
