Another question this tank came with a big 6 foot 4 t12 light has 2 actinic bulbs and 2 daylight the light is intense with what I've read the lion and shark don't like intense light so I put a 4 foot light of my 75. A friend told me with improper lighting I would have high algy growth Witch light should I be using

We have both Volitans and banded sharks at work under EcoTech 120's..... Youll be fine with the t5 setup. Although if you decide not to do corals, you could do stricty ornamental lighting. I have heard of lionfish developing blindness over long periods of time (years) due to intense lighting, however t12's shouldnt be a problem

Youre gonna need more than t12's to penetrate deep enough to house decent corals. Id go multi-bulb t5ho or led... But of course that time will come

Ok next question brittle stars nucence or beneficial and little red spikey worms friend called it a bristle worm good bad? Hard to get ride of? When I first got the tank there were worms and little stars every where I pulled out another worm tonight but I havnt seen a star for a day or two I think the cow fish eat them. And I finally got the lion to eat turns out it won't eat with the light on (called the guy who gave it to me) still the shark hasn't ate yet

The stars are beneficial but the worms may be fire worms so google that. The shark probably isn't eating because of the .25 ammonia. Like I said before thats the main problem not the Salt gravity. Do as many PWCs as possible.

if theyre bearded fireworms theyre bad. If theyre a type of bristle worm usually seen theyre ok. And the bearded fireworm is really only bad to gorgonians. So dont kill either. The worms are a great part of your CUC. Same with the stars.
