Very nice and awesome price.
What kind of lights do you have? I hope it doesn't brown out on you. It can be tuff to have them keep their color.

You should get some polyp extension during the day, but as with most other acros, ther best pe is at night.

I spoke to the lfs today to advise them they might have sold me a DOA. They showed me another one they have in their reef display tank and it looks the same. He said the polyps should come out in the next few days....if not, bring it back. I have noticed a small polyp extension at the base. At the top ones it looks like sweepers sticking out.

I am currently running a Current Sundial T5 48" x 4x54w. I am going back and forth about Halides and whether to buy a combo fixture or build a new hood with retro T5's and Halides. I will be doing this in the next few months. I really don't want to have to buy a chiller right now so I am looking into ways around that.

This is such a common misconception. 150w of MH lighting gives off the same amount of heat as 150w of T5 or a 150w light bulb or a 150w hair dryer or a 150w fan. A watt is a watt and always gives off the same amount of heat. The difference is in how the heat is dispersed. I run 525w of MH with no chiller and my tank temp is steady at 80-81.
