    So I'm a begginer when it comes to corals. In the past I've kept corals. But never been able to get any significant growth. This go around I'm keeping a sharp eye on the basic nitrogen cycle elements also alk cal an mag. This time around I have a better set of lights. The evergrow 165 watt led. They ramp up to 85%. So my lights over a 11 hour light cycle are over 50% power for 4 hours. Is this enough?
    My tank don't seem to have a nutrient problem I do regular water changes an minimal feeding. Tank has 2 clowns an a sulfin tang.

    Not really a feeding question. But feeding would indeed help growth.

    I have a question regarding quantity. I know I am inclined to over feed then to underfeed but how much should they get?
    The current inhabitants are:
    about 6 inch blonde naso tang
    About 5 inch dog faced puffer
    about 4 inch harlequin tusk
    About 3 inch flame angel
    1 cleaner shrimp (I know but no one seems interested in eating him yet....)
    I give them formula one pellets in the morning (how much should I throw in?) In the evenings they get frozen mysis (cube form-how many?) and either clams on the half shell or some frozen krill (how much?) I also try to keep Nori available most of the time.

    Hi I purchased 2 anemones about 6 days ago from a local fish store and the guy there recommended them to me. I am a new to the reef hobby I have a 5 gal tank and have attempted to feed them trout, salmon, and scallops. They grabbed onto the trout but later released it and would not grab the salmon or scallops. What should I be feeding them and how?

    You ma need a larger tank and a more established system also try chopping the food to real small morsels so the anemone can digest it it spits it up because it’s to large to digest
