Take a look at the Achilles tang, I think the red on black looks awesome.

I would slowly get the corals used to those new lights. Put them on the sand bed and work them up the rock. That pectinia coral isn't high light anyway. Tank is looking good!

Pectinia and candy cane wont feed with the blue leds on at night any thoughts I've been shutting them off at night when I go to bed and turning them on when I get up so they get 6 to 7 hours to feed. Thoughts???

The blues on these fixtures are pretty bright. Just attempt to feed them when they are on only and eventually they will take the food. They don't need to be fed anyway.

What I meant was there only opening in darkness to feed ( put feeding tentacles out) I can take a pic if that helps explain

You can "train" corals to put out feeders in the daytime with lights on, by introducing food to them in the daytime on a consistent basis.

Most corals get all the food they need from your lights and the water column anyway, so no need to feed.

I'm not feeding the corals all pectinia coral if healthy will expel feeding tentacles at night. Mine is not with the blue led lights on overnight

Those LEDs are not meant for use as moonlights. You will end up killing your corals, depriving them of a night time. You must shut those blues off at night..
