What makes file fish "not" reef safe? I've had mine for a little over 2yrs. Haven't touched any coral. Eats mysis when offered. Is there a particular coral that they will pick at?

Yeah, I think I will just stick with the Aip X, I just was curious if there was some more effective method. Do you guys think those lights/that spectrum will work well? Will I be able to tell this from the reactions of the corals? Any other advice as far as corals/lighting goes?

The AI prime you have should let you keep whatever you want. It'll just take adjusting...sadly I have no working experience with AI products.
As for the filefish, they have a likelihood to each polyps from sps, holes through clam mantles and Lps. Doesn't always happen, but it is a likely outcome.

Thanks for the responses. Continuing to kill off aiptasia, and have recently added some more corals, including a few more zoas and a nice Duncan. I've also added a Hector's Goby and a Royal Gramma. Now the questions:
Will the royal gramma come out of the rocks and swim around more when it gets comfortable in the tank? Also, are there any other good top swimming fish that I could get in the tank?
Secondly, what are your guys' opinions on Reef Roids?
And finally, One of my zoas doesn't ever seem to be coming out, but all the other ones are doing fine and seem happy? Is there a reason for this? Any good ways to coax it to open up?

My gramma comes out around feeding or if I'm near the tank. Otherwise she is chilling on top of the zoas at the entrance to her cave. I've had her about a year and a half now and while I wouldn't call her shy they're just more reclusive fish.

I use reef Roids maybe once a week in a broadcast feed. I like to think it helps but who knows lol.

Update:
I was able to get the AI Prime on a good photoperiod, and also they upgraded their app, so it is much easier to use!

Tank update:
Total stock list is now:
2 Occi clowns
1 Hector's Goby
1 Royal Gramma
2 Zebra Leg Hermits
1 Pistol Shrimp
3 snails
1 Emerald Crab

and quite a few corals.

now dealing with dinoflagellates....what a pain...
