I got what you suggested a while back ATI aquablue special and blue plus. Didn't see all that much of a diferance but lights were off so I put them in and turned them on. We will see how I like them in a few days.

Just some thoughts I have had about an upgrade. If I were to get a 120 gallon or even a 180 gallon tank would I be able to just move everything over without cycling the tank? As a reminder I have a 55 gallon with a 30 gallon sump and around 90lbs of rock and 90lbs of sand.

So just got home from work and the blues are on and they look amazing. Much better than what I had before and aquablue plus will be on soon think I am going to be happy. And on the upgrade part of my thread I just got one step closer today.

Shorten your photo period until it adjust to the light, or if possible raise your fixture a few inches to help acclimate corals to the light.

Is it bleaching on the top or the bottom? My BN is so big that the bottom and middle don't get light so it's completely naked of polyps, but the top and sides are still growing huge.

Blues come on at11 whites at 12 then the whites are off at six blues off at seven. The bleaching is in the middle of the birds nest.
