I finally got him to eat! It took him a while haha i know lionfish get really big so you don't have to tell me there was a 1'3" lion at lfs! But i will probably end up upgrading sometime again lfs guy said i should get a tang of some kind he said yellow tangs fit in pretty good with lions?, but ya i will upgrade again when he gets about 7-8"

Lighting- Yes on using a T5 HO fixture for keeping corals. Try and get one with 4 lamps in it.

you can grow a number of corals under T-8 and T5s its has much to do with spectrum and tank depth.although upgradeing wouldnt hurt i have several systems running on some of the least sought after lighting fixtures with the proper bulbs that contain numerous corals.

also wanted to ask you guys about sumps, currently i have 2 HOB double filters with carbon media, and a coralife superskimmer HOB.The main reason i want to run a sump is so i can hide all of my stuff and have a fuge i have a ten gallon tank i can use would that be good?

10 gallon sumps are rough to handle. They tend not to hold enough water, once you have an outage, the water lowers to a cetain level in the DT and also drains the lines to the sump, your Sump must be able to handle this water.

Get your buddy to give you a bunch of Live Rock from his tank, that will take your cycle down to a couple of days. The cloudy water is an Ammonia bloom.

my reef is looking sweet,only 1 problem i got 2 tangs at my lfs 2day the reason i got 2 is because they had a deal if you get 2 then its a cheaper price...long story.....anyways 1 is a blue hippo tang and 1 is a yellow tang and the guy told me they should get along together if both are same size and both are introduced at same time. well i brought em home acclimated for aprox 30 mins and put them in and they are "butting there tails together" it doesn't look like a major problem to me there both eating REALLY well as soon as i brought them home i fed the tank including them and they had no problem sucking down the flakes i gave them,im just a little worried because everytime they get close to each other they hit each other both are doing well its just that they don't get along,should i be worried about this or will they get over it? plz reply back asap!!!
thanks
