they kinda look like they're melting (dying) to me. even if that's the way they're supposed to look, they'd still look like they're dying to me... :D wouldn't want them in my tank.

Re: Recommend Soft Coral or LPS that stay small.

lps might not like this combination - they don't usually like high light/high flow. you could try a trumpet which wouldn't get blown around too much and maybe some zoas.

Cool. I figure the hood's not worth much since it would need new lamps, so I might as well save a little money on a ballast. Maybe I can do something about the 'ugly'. :D
