Lets start off by what are your water parameters, and how long has the tank been setup?

my tank has been set up for about two months. it is a 55 gal. with an emperor biowheel filter. i only have a yellow tail damsel, a bright blue damsel, a like light yellow damsel, and an ocellaris clown fish. I also have three hermit crabs and 2 snails. 3lbs of live rock.

With it being setup for 2 months, what are your water parameters, how much do you feed them, how long do you leave the lights on for during the day, also what type of lights do you have?
