Here is an update on all my saltwater things:

55 gallon: A little over three months ago had a huge crash when the heater thermostat broke and baked everything at around 95 degrees.

20 gallon long: Torn down and moved into a 40 gallon breeder

10 gallon QT: Torn down and kept in storage for future use :D

NEW - 40 gallon breeder reef:

Lighting: Tek-Light 6 bulb fixture with three 640 nm actinic bulbs and three 10,000k daylight bulbs. Signature series moonlights. All on timers: actinics on at 10:30 a.m. - Daylights on at 12:30 p.m. - Daylights off at 7:30 p.m. - actinics off at 10:30 p.m. - moonlights on 24 hours.

Filtration: Two AC-110s both for bio filtration and one for bio and some chemical. Eheim 2213 for mechanical and chemical filtration.

Pumps: Four Koralia 2s on wavemaker and two Koralia nano pumps on wavemaker

Live Rock: Approxemately 65 lbs. (about 1.5-1.6 lbs/gal.)

Corals: All sorts of zoos and polys... a green goniopora, and some other stuff

Fish: Canthigaster Valentini, Sixline wrasse, flaming prawn goby, blue mandarin dragonet, orange stripe goby, and a randall's shrimp goby

Well thats my tank :D Any questions just ask! Want any parameters? Dosing regiments? particulars of any sort? Just ask and I'll post em up!
My reef is my expression... its a mixed bag of a bit of everthing with no clear theme all including mood swings, many odd quirks, nooks, crannies, and the best part: growth

Are Valentini puffers compatible with a reef in the long term, or do you intend on moving him?

It depends on the individual fish. Mine does not touch the coral, but that may be aided by the fact that I feed him well. If you want to try it, proceed with caution because they can eat coral and often do yet many of them also do not eat it. They can get along with anything they can't fit in their mouth (which is really really small) so reef fish are not a problem but they can take little chunks out of coral and if they do that several times a day the coral can be killed very quickly. Some valentini puffers are incredibly docile and others can be aggressive... so you can try but it may take a few tries before you get a good one (and two valentinis of any species can absolutely NOT live together... they WILL kill each other)

i've been keeping freshwater for 5 years :)

i can say i've kept a lot of cool stuff, speaking of which i just picked up a pbass.

anyways...

saltwater is a lot less work. well, not setting up the tanks but maintenance is. tbh, i'm really tired of doing so many water changes, etc. i think i'm going to cut down to 3 or 4 tanks.
