I would turn it off for the night and just turn them on in the morning normally

I'd agree, the corals will be fine with one day of no light.

The B&W is doing well, except for that pesky six line wrasse nipped at his fins a little. He is still swimming and happy go luck though! Any suggestions for the wrasse? I'm hoping overnight the wrasse will get used to him.

They are pretty fish with cool eyes, just make sure he is your last fish in your tank. If he isn't your last fish, he could be aggressive towards smaller species. When I added my Lemonpeel he never bothered him.

I am constantly picking my zooas up off the sandbed in my 20g. LOL It's my pesky emerald crabs I bet. Love them though even if they wreak havoc overnight. hehe

I think it was my Lemonpeel angel. I saw him pick at the little rock where the zoas were. Either that or a snail.

Oh no you don't! Lol It is a huge work in progress and looks very bad. The fish are Blue Hippo tang clownfish and Niger triggerfish. Don't worry though I will be upgrading to a bigger tank.

Upgrade to a 125+ gallon tank for the tang when you do BTW. What type of clown?

Ok thanks. It is just an ocellaris clown! When I bought the tank of craigslist it came with 2 clowns (1 died) and the tang.
