Every thing looks good from the pictures. No excessive hair algae, which I'm sure your yellow tang takes care of that. Diatom bloom seems to be dying off. Everything looks great for a 4 month old tank.

Looks great for 4months old!

Keep an eye on those Jebao's though. I had an RW4 in my tank and without warning it just stopped working, luckily I had some spare powerheads laying around but just thought I'd give a friendly warning!

Hard to believe this is at 4 months...it is a very healthy looking system with coral, no apparent pests on the LR, more than likely stable parameters with probably no major pH fluctuations as the Skunk Cleaner is is doing so well...good job and nice thriving system, you have done well.
