Start small with maybe one snail and one blue legged hermit .You don't want to have to feed the cuc.
To can add more as you stock and
the tank develops.

So I got another piece of love rock, 1 shrimp and since I've been spending a lot of money at this place I was gifted a free firefish. I was hesitant on accepting since I don't have a cover yet.. But I was assuming that since there shouldn't be anything in tank to spook him yet he shouldn't want to test his luck at carpet surfing

Photo dump of the gold coral banded shrimp and the royal gramma.

I also need to replace the 10k t5 bulb in the coralife fixture because it is now running red. Something happened to it.

I also need to purchase a smaller powerhead because the one I have is far too strong for this tank.

My shrimp also won't leave that cave. I hope he's just acclimating to the tank

It will eventually be out more as it gets used to it's surroundings.

I know they are out more at night. I am assuming that I just don't see him do his thing. I do not want to have to selectively feed him.

Got him! I turned the light off and it didn't take long for him to come out.

I always thought that the Actinic lamps were lunar lights? Is that not the case?

No actinics are there for helping with coral coloration from what I understand. Moonlights should be very very dim and your tank should still have total darkness
