about feeding the coral, i've been feeding it everyother day. i'll feed it some phytoplankton one day then next time some mysis...
about the T5 fixture there is a 24" 4 bulb 24w ea and a 24" 6 bulb 18w ea...i'm going to go with the 6 bulb because of the extra wattage.
the problem i have is i know i need a stronger light but since i have a corner tank i can't fit a larger lamp so im stuck with low wattage unless i go with metal hallide and i really can't afford that now nor anytime soon
thanks for clarifying my concern about lighting though
