Eclipse 12 Journal [Updated 03/10/11 Pics added]

Hello all, new to the forum here, been a lurker for awhile though.
I been away from the hobby for about 8 years and decided its time to return. This is an Eclipse 12 aquarium, a little beat up from when it was a reef tank, but its what I have to start with.

32 watt PC 6700/10000 with CSL electronic ballast
13 watt Ecoxotic 8000k LED Strip
.5 watt Moonlight LED

All of this is installed in the eclipse hood

Filter and heating
inline heater with eheim 2213.


Pressurized with dual stage regulator and Sera 500 reactor.

Power Sand S capped with 2-4 inches of Amazonia Aqua soil

Flora: Stauro repens, UG, anubias nana petite, blyxa, and some sort of moss (think its peacock that snuck in with the anubias).

Livestock: 3 amano shrimp for now.

If anyone has any other ideas please feel free to share.

Pics of the hardscape are below. Sorry for the picture quality, all I have is my cell phone to take pics with.
