Well its been 1.8 months since iv setup my tank, here are the specs:

Details:
DT: 24"x15"x15"
Lighting: 2x10w blue and 2x10w White Led flood lights.
Sand: crushed coral
Flow: Sobo 3000lph and a Nano boyu wave maker (i had a hydor too with smart wave, but it got burnt withing 2 weeks)
Sump: 24"x10"x12"
Filteration: GFO, Carbon, LR, Toadstool Algae, Cheato and halmedia
Skimmer: Boyu
ATO - Electronic float switch with aqualifter pump
Salt : Red sea Salt

Live stock:
fishes: Currently 1 chromis and few snails.
corals: pink, yellow and 2 types of green zoas, palys, mushrooms, Green tip brown acro, Favia Brain, Green finger and brown finger.

MISTAKES: I dumped a 2 kg packet into the water and the tank was dead cloudy for two days. reason was i dint dry mix the salt and dint go slowly. so emptied the tank and then first dry mixed the salt then added 1 scoop every 5 mints (total 35 scoops)

Here are some of my tank videos:

2nd)http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5p_TlhNwwyM&feature=plcp
3rd)http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2DUp8uI5Ey0&feature=plcp

Will post pics once i get some comments and suggestions.

nope, its 10w led flood lights. it has 1 single 10w led COB (chip on board)... i have an acro and its growwing great.... i get here at local light makret for Rs.500 (10$), if u dont get them there, u can order online from china..... there are many websites selling it. they are available from 10w to 50w (higher too but they are too intense, will burn your corals) i guess the deeper the tank, the higher wattage to be used.
