90g in-progress

Hello, so this is my 90g Reef Ready.

Right now it is a pretty basic set-up. Filter is a huge bio-tower/ sump with a filter floss prefilter. Nothing ground breaking. Sub strate is organic potting soil about 1" deep with a mix of red/black florite and Fluval Stratum. Decore if local collected Red Granite stone and Driftwood from the Snohomish river. Lighting is a single Orbit PC fixture (65x4).

Fish consite of 10 Ornate Rainbowfish, mix of 20 so HY511, Red Serpa, and Red Phantom Tetras, and 10+ Octo cats. Oh and 6 new Angel Fish (gift from Bob)

I just "planted" the tank last night with a bunch of plants I traded a pr of discus for. Looks to be two or three types of Java Fern, a couple type of green cryptos, some large mats of Java Moss, and a few plants I have not ID yet. Bob told me all the names but I didn't think to bring paper to write them down.

Te tank had been neglected for awhile and I let alge get a little too extensive. So need to get that under control also by controlling my photo period better, more water changes and cutting back on feeding

I'm very open to suggestions and comments please.

Well onto everyones favorite part, pics!!

and for giglez my Discus/SA cichlid breeding/fish room
