Tank has been setup in my house since November when I got it off KSL.

The tank was over run with hair algae, and in poor shape.
No caroline algae growth on the glass, some on the rocks, Phosphates off the chart, ammonia was high, the few pieces of coral were suffering.

no clean up crew (0 crabs and 0 snails).

I'm still dealing with phosphate, bu tI am keeping it under control with a phosguard reactor.

My least favorite is the stupid carpet anem in the top left corner.  It eats fish and I think it is ugly.
 I don't even want to honor it with a picture.  grr
