The more I read the more I wonder if LR was a good idea, Fish only may have been a better choice but it is a heck of a learning experience.

I agree with the captain. 6-9 months is needed to have a mature tank that can house an anenome. And BTW your lights are nowhere near enough

Well okay, I look over the rock daily, the colors seem to be good from what I heard and read and I compare to the tank at the shop where I go, purple is good and there are two shades of purple a few bloom like things that are maybe a maroon color or darker, some light grey areas, at the base of a few of the rock is brown algae I presume the lawnmower blenny is all over that and some snails I bought and maybe a little bit of light green here and there.

so as far as I can see maybe around January we will consider more light and maybe move on to other living SW creatures

I know, lol, the things that you discover on a day to day basis is amazing and fun! You'll love it and everyday you will probably have something new to research :p
