Yes, I don't think you need to worry. If it continues to get any lighter, or stops opening up fully, then worry.

It's opening up fully. Waving in the current and all. I can't get it to eat Mysis though. Holds it in its tentacles then lets it go. I moved it from mid level to low.

I have never seen mine eat anything at all. It probably does eat microscopic bacteria and other tiny things, but as far as prepared food, no.

I have tried several times to feed mine and have never seen it really get anything.. I watched a video from tidal gardens where they tried to feed torches and hammers and such with no luck.

Yeah.. Only thing I would suggest is moving it down.. It may have had A shock going from the lfs lighting to yours. It is fully opened though so that is a good sign.. Coloring up can take a while.. I didn't acclimate a birdsnest corals correctly to my lights, and it lost all if its nice neon green color... It's just now starting to get its color back after a month of moving it down

Protein Skimmer Question

I have a 55 gallon Aquarium with no sump. I am using a canister filter just to get rid of the surface scum that builds up. I have 2 Mp'10s but they don't point to the surface to clear the film. The canister is making my nitrates spike. I won 2 Eshopps psk-75H skimmers rated for 75 gallons each. Would that be overkill in my system? I really wanna ditch the canister but hate that surface film. I can't have a sump cause the landlord is having a fit about me having a tank already lol. I have 60 pounds of live rock and 55 pounds of Tropic Eden live sand. Any advice?
