I thought so too, my nem isnt moving at all, seems happy at the bottom ! Fully open and growing! My 76 is only 2 inches taller then my 35 was so not much par issues at all. Afterall, par means more to me in lighting as well as spectrum , then anything else. Thanks!! I may go into the fixture and move my center moonlights, they fall right on the top brace and cause the middle to be really dark at night, ill reposition them. The back on to the left of the brace, and the front to the right of the brace. I need to keep a good eye long term though, went from 6.2 w/g to 3.1w/g

Check out the two barred rabbitfish. They look better in person than they do online.

Nice looking fish i really like it, maybe my stock list would be one of those if i can find one around here, a white bristletooth tang, a kole tang, and another oscellaris to pair mine up, along with the two damsels i have that i may rehome to my sump which i just made a fuge in, if they cause a problem, ill also get a bubble tip, hopefully lemon drop ! Fingers crossed! If not, ill deff be gettin some maxi minis and some anenome crabs and shrimp !

Going to pick up some cheato algae and mangroves for my refugium tomorrow, i am not currently going tk be running a skimmer for a year, pending good results. With my 35 i had zero nitrates forever, no skimmer or sump or refugium just weekly water changes, now ill try for bi weekly to tri weekly 11 gallon water changes as well as a fuge. The math works out accordiing to all my nimbers

Congrats on everything looks great! For the tangs, you should try to add them at the Same time. That way they will both be new to the tank and won't get at each other. Also anytime you do a tank upgrade, you usually wanna wait a few weeks before adding anything new just so your not overwhelming your bio load. Good luck!

I would deffinately have to agree with adding them the same time, only problem is, i have yet to find a store or online site that sells white bristletooth tangs in ontario canada. I can get the kole tang anytime
