Mets My 93 Gal cube tank 1.5 years

Hi all,

I wanted to share the progression of my reef setup that's about 1.5 years old. I purchased this 93gal cube and stand, 50 gal sump and light (Maxspect 160W 16k) from a member here on MR. Best buy I have made. Many of these corals, and my purple tang also came from some members on MR and each member I have dealt with has been great. I have had my ups and down but luckily more ups then downs with this setup.
Here are a few pics from when I first added rocks and water and what it has become so far but i have a long way to go still.
