Never heard of that nem before, youhave a link?

What type of t5 do you have? 2 bulb, 4 bulb, 6 bulb...what brand? are they individually reflected?

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

I would say a two bulb fixture isnt going to cut it for a nem, even if it were individually reflected. How big is your tank and how long has it been up?

Nems are very very picky and usually only do well in an established tank, pristine water and super duper lighting.

I'll google the nem and double check, but I've never heard of a low light nem before. lol
