Random questions....

Have a few questions to ask...please help...

1. With diatom blooms, should i run my light less to minimize or let them run their course?

2. Do you turn pumps and/or powerheads off when you feed?

3. Is it ok to use glass cleaners on outside of tank?

4. How long (generally) should one wait before adding a Bubble Tip Anemone? Daughter is dying for a "home" for a clownfish.

Thanks for your time!!

Diatoms let run their course. For feeding I would turn filters and sump off to keep from sucking up extra food but the pumps in your tank are optional. I turn everything off when I feed but I have about 30 corals to feed too. You shouldn't use any cleaners on your tank to avoid contaminating the water (i occasionally do though so I'm a bit of a hypocrite lol) and the nem requires an established tank which most will reccomend waiting 6 months atleast but thats not to say it isn't possible to keep one way before then.
