As far as I know Bangaii don't school. They'll basically kill each other until there's a pair left from what I understand.

My auto correct did not fix that! I'm very happy this tank has been set up for  years now, it's a simple set up . 3 power heads, 6 t5 bulbs, small skimmer that's not always working , tiny aqua clear filter with a bag of GFO , 3 fish , and a tea spoon of buffer once a week. The only thing I check is salinity when I do a 5 gallon h20 change monthly.

That's the sort of story that makes me want to reduce water changes and not upgrade my skimmer, lol.

Here's a recent photo , it's funny ,I might be getting the ACRO bug! Too bad most of the club members here have no more tanks that got me interested in this club,   yell1 :crazzzy:hard to find local sps !

I hope with my 6 new bulbs and my skimmer modification ( 802 power head with air pump feeding a sea clone skimmer) that I'll be able to make these new sps grow like my giant lps.
I just check salinity when I do my biweekly water change . I haven't checked my water in years, just a pinch of buffer or a scoop of calcium every few days

 I would keep the acro's as close to the top as possible. I had better luck keeping them in the 46 than I have had lately in the 150.The waivepiont 4 bulb I'm using in the 150 are not enough for them.I never used a skimmer in the 46;but I did do my water changes.

 They are now in a bucket with a MH sitting over them. They went from a white , to staring to get there color back. I do think lights make a difference .
I do wonder how others are doing keeping acro's using LED's .

The tank is not to tall and the acros are mounted about 10" from the light, I would think 6 t5' are enough to get them growing , my real problem is probably the phosphate levels

Good luck with the sticks Tony.  They can be a challenge.

A great many threats face reef environments.  An informed marine aquarist can be part of the solution, not a contributor to the problem.
