Hi,

Nice tank, stop using Bio Balls if you are starting as a reef tank now, bio balls are good for denitrification and redox BUT they are nitrate factories, your live rocks will do the same job so let the nature work

How deep is your tank, I think this light will be low for your tank.

Happy Reefing!

That is totally normal. If a leg gets cut off two or three might grow back. Some starfish even tear themselves apart to reproduce (astrea starfish).
