Theyve been in the tank now for 2 months, and their schooling behavior is still very strong, as you can see in the clip.

Lobster; why not just go the normal route, and use the bucket w/ bulk heads? You get more depth (mines at like 10"), and it's just as easy to remove.

Do you have any recent, white-balance corrected photos? I felt some of...

I have great growth from my rics and zoas in my 90g BB with 2x Ushio 14k (250w DE HQI).
