    How slowly to increase lighting?

    Hey all, I've had my tank up for a little over half a year with no severe issues; however, I've started adding some sps and noticed that the overall lighting for them may not be high enough. They stay healthy-looking for around two weeks then they lose color and get some tissue loss and...

    Proper Night Lighting

    Hi all, sorry if this is the wrong forum for this thread. May be a silly question but I was just curious if it’s fine to leave the blue light on in my saltwater tank for my clownfish at the darkest setting when going to bed. Or should I turn it off completely?
