and guys, im having a bit of an algae problem, assuming its from feeding what could you determine it to be? take a look at the white base rock, starting to get a darkish orange, close to red. but i dont think its coraline. get back to me and check out the live stream to see for yourself

either Diatoms or cyano prob, just dial back your feeding and drop the light schedule for a few days.i had the same issue and started running my lights for 4-5 hours a day for 4 days and it took care of it.

It depends on how bright they are. If they aren't very bright at all then yes, but if it is bright, then your fish wouldn't be able to sleep.

I heard you can't just buy 2 because they'll fight. They would need to be a mated pair.
