    Good choice on bulbs. XM's are nice, i need to get some new bulbs and im going back to XM's.

    Concerns on the fish selection, 2 madarins and the wrasse, might end up just destroying your pod population. Just something to possibly consider.

    Flow i would probably go with 2 k evolution 1400's and 1 1050. Think that would be plenty.

    I would ditch the crush coral subtstrate, go with something finer.

    And if you can, try to get a bigger sump, bigger is better.

    Jealous. Those dimensions are dreamy.

    I have to agree with EMU on the crushed coral substrate.

    I'm looking forward to watching this come together.
