The lighting system definitely needs to be upgraded to atleast a 6 bulb t5. Sorry...I'd see if you can bring the nem back - or if they can give you a good deal on a new light fixture. E-bay has a nice set up for $179 shipped 6 bulbs w. a timer.

Splitting is not a good thing, my oldest nem is 7 years old and 10 times the size he was when I got him, my other four are 3-4 year old nems and are 4 -5 times their original size, and none have ever split. Splitting is a save the species reaction, some say an over feeding reaction but never seen any proof of that. And especially if they split within a month it is because the conditions are not right.

Marine beginner, I also just got a GBTA. I drip acclimated for 3 hours. I introduced it into my 90 gallon with lights and PH's off for 12 hrs. After 12 hrs I set my PH at 50%. My coral bandit picked at it in the original spot I put it and it moved away and attached to a rock.

Did I acclimate and introduce it right?

Really good. I feed it twice or three times a week. It's moved into the best spot possible for my tank and corals. I'll upload a picture when I get a chance. Thanks for asking.

If it's bleaching doesn't that mean it's getting too much light?

Can you adjust the lights or move it lower in the tank, maybe give it a bit of cover. I'd try making some adjustments and maybe PM Mr.x. He's very knowledgeable.

your nem is VERY bleached, like I said before, it split to try and save itself, unless you have MH lighting or 3 watt high end cree leds, it probably will not make it, sorry but just stating the facts, your tank is less than 6 months old and you only have 36 watts of lighting, you can not keep a nem, and your chances of keeping a bleached one is slim to none. For reference My nems sit 4 inches under 500 watts of MH lighting, just to give you reference to what they need to thrive. He will die and crash your entire tank, so keep a watch on it. Sorry but those are the facts.
