Here are a few vids of my progress over the course of the last 18 months.  I started with a 36 gallon bowfront and recently upgraded to a 90 gallon.  

The old 36 gallon:


The 90 early on:

After LR addition:



Most recent after upgrading the cheap Mars Aqua to a pair of rail mounted AI Hydra 26 HD lights and the addition of a Pajama Cardinalfish:

Pretty cool set up you have there, Jester. Are you planning on adding anything else to it? Great videos btw.

Actually, I am.  I had to remove the Yellow Tang because it got aggressive towards the coral beauty (nipped off the tip of it's lower fin and was hitting it with it's scalpel).  I have a Pyramid Butterflyfish in QT and will post a video of it when it's in.   In the meantime I did add a backing to my aquarium:

Well, the Pyramid didn't make it and I can't source another one, so I went with a One Spot Foxface instead.  I added it along with a Blue Star Leopard Wrasse:

Needed more bio-filtration, so I added a CF Grow LED and some Chaeto to my sump:

Seems to be working well.  Chaeto is definitely growing and will need to be trimmed before too long.  Anyways, got in on some cheap coral frags at my LFS' Black Friday Sale:
