    Thanks! ya i cant wait to add some livestock to it The tank has a glass top so evaporation really isnt bad at all, i add a cup of water every other day, and that is even a little to much. as for water changes go i may do a little bit of each method depending on how much time i have in the week and how much algae/detritus build up i have. I like aspects of both methods

      Ok so update! i added livestock! just corals and snails for now, not quite comfortable enough to add my yellow watchman goby yet. Everything is doing great so far, and i do have algae growth though, so im about to go to marine extreme and pick up some hermit crabs. I pickey up some awesome corals from Justin (thanks!) and have a few from my own collection. Here is what i have in the tank so far: very large turbo snail ( not to stay just to help with algae bloom) and a nerite snail.
      as for corals i have: Neon green hammer coral (1 head), 2 acan colonies (2-3 heads), green star polyps, Giant blue mushroom, small frag of pink birdsnest.
      I decided on what i wanted for fish, im going to go with a yellow watchman goby, and a tailspot blenny.
      Let me know what you think!

            thanks! Also i decided i needed more flow so i had a very small pump lying around that i placed on top of the in tank filter. Its very discrete there and provides the perfect amount of flow, im very happy with it

                its been a while since i updated this thread, so i figured its about time. Had a slight crash a while back but the tank seems to have bounced back rather well. the hammer coral is doing especially well. It started out with one head and now it has 4, and i have dosed very little (A testament that the stock lights on these tanks do grow coral). In the tank i have hammer coral, gsp, and two frags that im watching for a friend. one is acan echinada and the other is a favia. There is some macro algae in there as well. Here are some pics

                      i i decided to mess with the scape a little and to be honest i really like it. I also cleaned up the tank and did some dosing as well. I have a watchman goby currently in my 40b and i am going to move it to my nano. Also i think i am going to add a tailspot goby as well. I love these little fish and i think one would look very nice in my setup. Here is a FTS as of today
