Don't mind the algae, it'll clear up soon - also got some snails working on it.
Here's the coral.

I’m glad you’re following previous advice given in your other thread and entering!

You have some great looking tanks :)

Keep up the good work.

From what I’ve gathered, both freshwater and marine setups are in the same contest.

This months has room for one more contestant.

freshwater and saltwater tanks in the same contest. It's not a contest then coz the marine tanks win hands down. :)

Yeah was thinking that, although i prefer my fresh right now - a salt with a decent amount of coral will win.
Especially how much i have just spent on 3 pieces haha

Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. Some people prefer the look of nice greenery and aquascaping that freshwater tanks can provide. Some like the colorful fish and natural live coral in a well set up saltwater reef tank. We don’t run a separate contest for saltwater tanks. You are welcome to enter either type of tank in our contests.

Added a few coral; i'll add the names into the first post.
Here's a picture. (ALGAE WARNING).

Also i could do with an ID on the mushroom as it came already stuck to the rock of the other coral.
Will it bother the pulsing xenia?

Anyone using the intank media baskets with this tank?
I've some questions on flow;

Due to only the bottom 3 holes been open, the flow to chamber 2 top baskets will be limited,
I'm guessing stuff like carbon etc will be okay in there and still do its job?

Here's my awesome drawing.
