That sounds like a reasonable plan to me.

Yes I noticed that as well- not being able to dim completely. I brought mine up very slow like that and it worked out good. I've had them for several months now and never turned them up all the way. Only coral I ever had an issue with was a chalice it didn't completely die though and is coming back albeit sloooowly.

The only things that seem unhappy with the new lights are the shrooms. Everything else loves them. Hopefully, the shrooms adjust quickly so I can turn the lights up a few notches.

A local reefer gave me a red bubble tip anemone last Thursday. It promptly moved under a rock, into a cave, and hid. To be expected, of course. But it stayed there, and is still there. I was starting to get worried, but today, while peering around the back, I was quote startled to see a smaller, second anemone! He split! No wonder he was hiding.

They will do that when stressed. Grats on the second anemone!

I guess the move stressed him more than I thought!
My green BTA is doing fantastic, so I'm willing to wager these two will do fine once try recover.

Got so,e frags shipped in today. FedEx temporarily lost them, so they got cold. Also jostled enough to break the montipora into little pieces. Lost the acropora turaki, but everything else survived.
