Thanks! It's been a goal a long time in the making. Feels good to finally be there and it was well worth the wait.

This BTA decided to go for quite the stroll tonight after lights out. I believe it had crawled over and stung about every coral I have!
Anyone know what kind of death toll I may be looking at? Hopefully just damage? What should I do? It's still on the move!

It'll keep moving around until its happy. If it stung your coral, as they might be irritated that it moved over them rather than stung as well, it would depend on the degree of which it was stung.

It settled back into the exact location it left...
Unbelievable.

Keep an eye on your parameters. If it's moving, I would want to know why.

Parameters are as follows.

Nitrates: 0
Phosphates: 0
Ph: 8.2
SG: 1.026
Cal: 420 (time to dose)

Lights came on at 11:00 and all corals opened up. However, 2 galaxy corals have damage. The larger of them has 3 heads that are pretty much gone. The smaller has 1 out of 10 heads that was spared, so it's pretty much a goner unless somehow it pulls through. 1 Ricordea has significant damage but is opened up. Pagoda cup has 3 out of 12 heads that have damage as well as minor damage on the encrusted area. I think it will survive. I was very surprised to see no damage on my colt being that the anemone was directly underneath it and brushing against it heavily. So far I've found no damage on it.

My guess is that it moved because of flow. I have the power heads on a cheapo wave make that came with the tank and it has started going wacky. It switches at different times although it is set at 30 second Intervals. I just timed them and sometimes it switches at 15 seconds, sometimes 30 and sometimes 45. I think it's time to get rid of it. I'm kinda afraid that if I do, the nem will move again, but if this thing keeps it up, it will move anyway. I've tried resetting the wave maker and the problem continued. It runs fine for a couple hours and then goes wacky again... Weird!
