    My sabae has jettisoned a tenticle...

    Update: The loose tenticle deflated a few hours later, and was consumed by spaghetti worms.. Sabae appers fine.. It is unlikely that a power head twisted it off as they have been in the same position for years.

    Lighting

    I don't think you can touch 2 250w hqi de for 250 to 350. mabye one. I'll assume your 55 is 4" by about 13" and say your best bet is a 2 x 175 mh retro for a med light tank or "softie" tank or a 2x 250 for a higher light tank. your price range pretty much excludes any "plug and play "lights.

    Is this a Saebe?

    I always misspelll that. Anyhow, He has fat, tan tenticles with purple tips, instead of skinny white tenticles with purple tips. I've had him for some time and he appers healthy. he also moves to a rock every so often, from the sand. My reserch shows this to be odd. I will try to post a pic.
