    Lighting Schedule & Mounting

    Hello guys, I just bought a new lighting fixture for my 75 gallon tank. It is a canopy style combo of 2x 250W HQI metal halide lamps, 4x 54W T5 HO lamps, and 6x dual Bluemoon LED. I only have experience with the lighting on my 55 gallon tank, which are 2x pendant style 150W HQI metal halide...

    Getting Rid of Worms

    I have Oenone fulgida worms. The only thing that keeps them from feeding is the metal halides. How long can you leave metal halides on without harming invertebrates, corals, fish, etc? Is it possible to leave them on long enough to starve out the worms?

    Do the worms have hard tubes that they retreat into? Are they long and stringy like a piece of thread? Do they have a bunch of tentacles like spaghetti? How thick are they? Do they secrete spider-web kind of strands?

    They should be kept out of the direct light and should recieve good, alternating flow. A powerhead directed at them will not be sufficient. They need an alternating current from something like a wavemaker or a powerhead with an adaptor on it that allows it to spin. Never expose your sponge to...

    Anemone Feeding

    To have the anemones stay the same size, feed once a week. To have them grow feed 2-3 times a week. The recommendations of using uncooked seafood is a very good one. It is the healthiest and least expensive.

    Blue Velvet Nudibranch

    It will more than likely starve to death in your tank. I don't know why anyone would recommend one to you. It will devour the flatworms in your tank within a week and then have nothing to eat.

    Too many corals?

    Keep a hefty supply of activated carbon around and you have no worries. Just make sure to replace it every week. I literally keep sps and softies in the same 10 gallon tanks this way. (fragging)

    Your salinity seems low. Needs to be at least 1.024, and I would suggest 1.026

    Rock Question

    Experts always advise against having the rockwork touch the glass at all. It can crack the glass or cause stress on the silicone seals. I know this sounds preachy and overprotective, but imagine coming home to 55 gallons of saltwater on the floor. :D
