I got my midas from live aquaria and he came to me a bit pale and not a vibrant yellow, but after a day he had his full coloring and was very happy. I;ve only had him for maybe a month so i can't speak for hardiness but he made the move from the 55g to the 125g with no ill effects either.

As far as the lighting, I use my blues as the warming up or warming down of my lighting schedule. I have my blues come on at 10am and off at 10pm. I run my whites from 11am to 9pm.

Awsome! So Could I do
Blues: 7am to 5pm
Whites:7:30am to 9pm?

The reason I want that is because the cooling fans on the biocube are really loud with the blues. My corals would get about 10 hours of full spectrum lighting.

My whites arent on as long as my blues are so less noise. The sound tends to die down after a while anyways, sometimes I just give it a bang and it goes away. lol

I think most corals would be happy with from 8-10 hours of light.
