    Are you planning on adding more rock? Looking kinda short at the moment. That's pretty cool, I didn't know IM had probe holders.

    Setup is looking really good actually. I'm jealous!

    Going with T5 lighting?

    I am using marine pure ceramic bricks in the sump to supplement for less rocks. Don't want to over populate this tank. I am using all led. 4x reefbrite actinics and my vertex sr360.

    I'll being adding more seporax and seachem matrix bio filters in the sump. There is a pretty large post on rc about how effective these two bio media at reducing nitrite cause of the amount of surface area nitricfying bacteria can grow on these.

    That's just to keep fish from jumping out right? How well does the screen material hold up?

    Yeah I recall a reefer here used the screen door type of stuff over their tank, apparently the zinc coating on it made the tank not so happy.
