That is a really nice change from start to finish. What livestock has changed in the time you've had it?

Anenome situation. I started off with 2 and now I have 5. In this picture you see what use to be one very large RBTA. It had split into 2. I dimmed my middle led lights because I have clownfish eggs beneath the RBTA and I read somewhere to dim the light for the eggs. I did this about 3 days ago and now the BTA split into 3 and one of them looks like its splitting again. I should have a total of 6 soon. Whats going on?

I've heard Nems often split as a survival response. It might not be liking the lack of light?

I'd be returning things to normal. In all reality, the clown eggs are cool...until you realize that they are fancy food for your tank inhabitants. It takes a separate setup to try and raise them. So, I wouldn't make special accommodations for them considering that.

When it comes to the anemone splitting, this is normally a response to stress as Todd stated. I wouldn't look to it as being directly from the light, but combine that in with the clowns being in and around it with the eggs can also irritate an anemone. As long as there wasn't any drastic changes in the tank I would put the lighting back to normal and continue on like normal.

Anyone use the BRS dual reactor?
I am running the media the opposite way it suggest to run it. I have the DT water coming into the carbon first and then the gfo. The reactor suggest you run it with the gfo first. This way I need to slow the rate of the pump to not tumble the gfo too much. The way I have it I can run the pump maxed out and not have to worry about the gfo tumbling too much.
