    It's the same thing with different clown morphs...I've seen plenty of different morphs not take to other morphs, even though they're the same species. Maroon clowns are especially mean towards each other and notorious for not pairing up well.
    You can try another lightning maroon but I would be EXTREMELY careful as they could kill each other f you don't keep an eye on them.

    Work on it tomorrow because it can cause some issues.

    I run mine almost full on but it's has got to be positioned right or you get splashes and drips on the opposite end of the tank. It might help to lower your water level a little initially until you figure out how you want to run it. Mine is on Reef Crest. Absolutely love it but I am still figuring mine out as well and I have had it two weeks. There is not a lot of information out there but if you go to youtube you can find some videos to give you guidance.

    Reef crest on full. Had to throw in a koralia 750 to get rid of dead spots. I love mine though. Another option is short pulse making a wave. Do you have the instructions manual? It's pretty helpful. If not, eco tech marine website helps.

    To get it in reef crest simple hit mode until the dial goes yellow, then adjust the knob to set the highest power level, it will fluctuate randomly from the first level to the highest level you selected. No need to hit any other buttons. If you hit set, it goes into lagoon mode.

    picked up a few new corals last night a Duncan with about 7-8 heads on it really deep green I love it may be one of my favorites between both my tanks and a small zoa rock I decided to do a zoa garden in the bottom right corner pics to follow sometime this weekend!

    The lightening is doing good very active compared to my ocellaris clowns in my other tank

    love the mp10 right now I only let it get up to 50% I am thinking of going to around 60-65 I love how I can set the schedule for different flows throughout the day

    the only issue I have right now is the skimmer it is producing good skim but tons and tons of micro bubbles still so I may be on the look for something new

    I always have to have a Duncan, I can do without all the other LPS, but I always have a Duncan. They truly appreciate target feedings and really take off growth wise when feed.

    Which skimmer do you have, it's a Tunze right? Sometimes if you re-seat the pump it clears up the micro bubble problem, also if you adjust the water level or skimmer depth. I have had 3 tunze's different models and micro-bubbles have never been an issue long term.

    We don't doll out the crap here if you show to be a responsible hobbyist. A Lightening Clown should have only the best. I remember when the first Lightening was acquired by who and how and where it went, yup I am that old. Love that type of clown and hopefully one day I'll have one as well. I am actually quite surprised the mutation came to market so quickly. I first saw them back in 2008 I believe.

    Everything looks fantastic.

    Now if you had added a Sebae, Gig, or Haddoni, we be throwing down.:rolleyes:

    Oh yea Mag too.
