    Was worried about the move to T5 lighting but all the corals are responding well...only running the actinics for now but will start with a 3 hour day period tomorrow

    All fish ate and skimmer is rocking, finally my pH is stable with the sump being alluminated all day, everything is looking awesome

    The only dwarf angel I ever had an issue with was a lemonpeel... and he only ate my SPS. It varies fish to fish, though.

    What about a bristletooth tang? Like a Tomini (I loved my tomini...)

    I never QT'ed. Just keep them fed and stress free. And make sure they're healthy when you buy them... don't "rescue" anyone.

    So I had to switch to T5's when going to the 75G as I had the aquaticlife 6 bulb with lunars that fit it perfectly...I am slowly acclimating my corals to the light by only running all 6 bulbs for 4 hours a day but my hammer seems pissed off for some reason?? maybe the move? it was open the first day and now it seems mad (it is on the sand bed in low flow like it was in the 30G, 0 on nitrates/phosphates, calcium 440, DKH 8.6, PH 7.7, salinity 1.025)

    I am running ATI bulbs that are only 1 month old, here is my bulb setup and tell me what you think...2 true actinic, 1 purple plus, 1 aquablue special and 2 coral plus

    Hammer corals are so sensitive to movement and light, mine it's just like that.

    I had really good luck with euphyllia and I'm actually hoping my LFS gets some in today with their order.

    I am going to say something to him...he is usually really good at taking care of his tanks but for some reason he just lost it

    plus I hate when LFS only get in huge hippo tangs, triggers and such...get smaller fish for crying out loud
