I have a rock that is covered in star polyps, and have noticed that since I have upgraded the lighting, they have not been extending out as far as they used to. They started under NO
lighting, then were under 4X65 CF
, and then this past weekend, a lightning bolt fried the ballast in the fixture, so I returned the fixture and upgraded to 4X96 coralife CF
's. I am wondering if I should maybe move the star polyps out of the light to make them extend out a little more. Thoughts?
By the way, my tank is unbeleivably bright with these new lights, but I cant open the glass canopy while the light is on top of the tank. Any tricks around this or do I have to take the fixture off the tank everytime I need to get in there?
