Ok, I put that piece on this morning and it did quiet it down a bit more. I am still looking for a light and considering getting my next fish. I am thinking about an anthia or a bangai cardinal (not sure if that's spelled right).

Just keep in mind that Anthias will need to be feed 2-4 times a day. The have a high metabolism because they are such active fish and need multiple feedings a day to keep healthy. It can be a real strain on tank filtration.

i don't think this is always the case. i know a few reefers that keep them and feed once a day. they've had them for a couple years now, so it's possible they don't need multiple feedings per day.

I think instead of the anthia, I'm going to pick up some type of red colored reef safe wrasse. Oh, I also ordered a bullet goby today.

that's a decent fixture. i would consider changing out the lamps for high end ones like ATI or giesemann. it will make a world of difference.
