Nah doesn't bother me, like I said im sure I won't even notice when the rock is stacked... It's a Deep Blue tank btw, if that makes a difference... The silicone is black too, looks kinda cool.

Can I put my heater in the return section of my BH2000? Or should I just put it in my tank...? Only concerns are close proximity to the thin acrylic of the skimmer...

I would put it in the tank. What if the skimmer fails? Not only will you have no skimmer, you will also have no heat in the water.

All the fish are in, including the anemone... Seemingly happy. The clowns are already starting to feel at home with the nem. Question: what intensity should I have this TaoTronic light at to keep my BTA happy? It's currently about halfway up in the tank. Thanks...!

Well, what sort of light was it coming from? I would start at about 100% blue for now, and ramp up the white over a period of weeks. Like 1 increment a week.

It came from a 4 bulb, 216 watt T5 with 2 actinics and 2 10k whites... WavePoint.

I would still start it like I said. 100% blue and zero white and work up. Use your best judgement, but remember that these units penetrate better than T5 or halide and the brightness, or lack of, is deceiving.

If I'm using all live rock from my other tank, when can I start to add coral?
