Pics: Aquarium Makeover

Here is a picture update on the progress of my tank. I needed to remove a fish because it was getting too aggressive and the only way to get him out was to remove every piece of rock. I thought I would take a picture and try to get some opinions or criticism on my tank. I don't use any glue on the rocks, I just stack them as best as I can until they stop falling over =) Any thoughts?

Same as above, only bigger.

Hard to get a good view on the tank as a whole because the picture is way too big. Try re-posting a smaller image so I can get a better view. Looks nice though.

There you go. I edited the first post to include a smaller pic.

It might be good to mention that the first two pics were with the flash on, that's why they look so different. I didn't realize the spectrum of the flash made it look different back then.

Are you feeding that tang w/ seaweed? It looks like he's about to turn inside out.

I don't have that yellow tang any more. But why do you think he's turning inside out? He looked fine to me =)

That's a good idea.

I have 2x96 PC lights, emperor 280 filter, and a seaclone 100 protein skimmer.

Thanks! There's actually the same amount of rock between the middle two pics, they're just rearranged better.
