Have you thought of getting a timer for your lights? Makes your life a lil easier. I have mine set up for 7 hr white and blues at night. usually when I go to bed I'll turn on the 3 LED's i got.

Sounds like you got the lighting under control. For example, I have my blues go on at 9 am and then the whites at 10am. The whites go off at 8pm and then the blues go off at 9pm. I dont run moonlights, but they don't really make a difference.

The nem will move if he is unhappy usually, if he needs more light or flow he will go to where he wants. Since he's in one spot he probably just likes it there.

i would give him a day or two and see how that goes. he could be digesting the last meal you gave him and if the pieces were too big he may be having a problem with it.

You can add as much base rock as you want right into the tank with no ill side effects. Its adding more live rock that can cause issues which is why a test kit is so necessary.

What's the main way to tell if your fish have the itch? Are the white spits real small or pretty apparent?

Got some new LR and got it put in. Changed up the reef. When the dust settles, I'll put up some pics. My poor fish are all confused... Lol... Still need about 20-30lbs of LR... Well, I'll get y'all opinion. Did not get the nem. I'll let it go till my tank is ready for it.

Well, I just added more LR. Pictures coming. Tested my parameters and I'm good across the board. 8.2 pH, 0 Ammonia, 0 Nitrite, and 0 Nitrate... I've never had 0 trate...lol... Need to get a test for ak, mag, and cal. Got a couple of bumble bee snails and 2 turbo snails. GHA is almost gone. I'll be posting pics soon. Also have added some soft coral.

Pics of new LR and reef arrangement. Any opinions, advice, or other comments? Due to the amount of rock, I am investing in another PH... I got two 802's now, any suggestions on what PH to get?
