THAT is a great tank. Very responsibly put together and very attractive. It doesn't appear to be overstocked either.

Yay!

If you use a good skimmer, that will help as the biomass increases.

You might consider one other macro added in there.
Shrimp and cleaners are good also.

Looks like a bakpak with the surface skimmer attachment. And I'll put in another vote for shrimp... they look great, add activity with very little biomass.

There is currently only one clown, the other jumped out I have thought about getting an anemone, however they tend to move around the aquarium at first, so there is a very good chance that it could sting some of my corals.

Filtration consists of a Remora skimmer, 30lbs of liverock, and 20lbs of livesand. For lighting I have a pair of 65W pcs (10K and actinic).

Yes, caulerpa prolifera (or something similar to that)

It is hard to find any sort of varity here in Phoenix. A few weeks ago I had a lionfish, so there were no shrimp, thought I may pick up a few in the near future.

Tom Barr recently did a talk at my local fish club (SVAS) on planted marine tanks, the photos of his tanks were mindblowing! Seemed like keeping the temperature low enough was a major headache though, do you have that problem?

Keep the pictures coming!
