Yeah, it has always looked like that. I moved the one into a shaded area and the other is under a powerhead. I just have never had the polyps extend.

Ill get a fts tomorrow. Im officially at work.

The lordhowsein (sp?) are vicious acans. Lol.

Try a lower light higher flow area

Well, they couldn't be in higher flow as they were on a similar flow path as my sps. I just lowered both the lighting and the flow. The more I keep thinking about it the more I think I need to make my 36 my LPS tank. Get it back in check for corals, get a sump setup on it, and maybe a taotronics led unit instead of the coralife 4 bulb t5ho. I love those acans though. The one that had the hermit casing/corpse was the one that came in pretty beat up and is just now playing catchup to the other 2. But since it has begun to flourish a really cool purple ring has shown up on it. I just love those acan lords.

I don't recall if you have a sump on the 55 or not? If so you could easily run your 36 off it.

I do have a sump on the 55. It is a 20 long with a huge reef octopus on it, rated at 150 gallons . I would have to rearrange the living room to do so...since my floor was damaged by wood boring beetles I don't want too much weight in one area...it would be doable though...or I could just restart the old aqueon sump that I had on the system originally with the crap seaclone skimmer on it. Even though it is a crappy skimmer, for an LPS system it would do the job.

I would keep the coralife. The Taotronics would be a little too powerful for a Lps system on a 35g. I have been having trouble with too much light for my Lps and I'm at 25% with my light.

The 4 bulb unit wasn't enough to let my lps thrive before though. I had sandbed corals in the middle of the tank just to get enough light.
