Judging by the pictures above, those palys in the background appear to be stretching upwards for light. I don't think it's too much light.

Yeah, I have been thinking the same thing. Just so unsure and scared I am going to burn the corals if I turn up the intensity. lol I am so used to the darn t5's lol.....BUT I am gonna try out the pellets going off line and see what happens,. How long do you think I would have to keep them off to notice a difference? A week? Two weeks?

Thanks X for checking in!

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

A couple weeks IME. One notch isn't going to cook anything.

My next priority is figuring out whats wrong with the corals, I think i will take the biopellets off line before i go back to t5's, just to see if its the lights or pellets. They just dont look as good as they did under the t5's I had for the 125g and the water is like 100% better as far as parameters.

Thanks for reading red, I appreciate it!!
Oh yes, the Anthias are nice too! Maybe a nice school of Lyretails....I love those guys!
