It took a few days for the copper banded buttery and the blue tang to adjust
And they are both very active , eating well
Between the blue and kole tang I started with allot of green algae growing and it's all gone after a few days .
The copper banded butterfly is eating a variety or frozen shrimp , I mixed up some scallops and raw shrimp in the blender and be seams to love it !
My clowns and anemone love it too .
Thank you !!

I'm going to invest in a timer for the lights but is
From 6 am till 10 pm too long for bright lights to be on ?
Do all fish have a scheduled bed time ?
They all seam to go hide for the night .
And if I were to go away for a few nights can I reduce feedings to every other day or skip 2 days ?

Light should only be on around 7 to 8 hrs. Timers are good but controllers are great, you can add other stuff to them, ATO for one. Fish sleep too, normal. Tangs need to be feed even if it's just algae sheets. The CBB might start picking at corals, if you go to long with out food

I think that's way too long for lights to be on! I run about 7-8 hours a day with an hour of moonlight at either end, then total darkness over night.
