The main point I am trying to make is it does not matter how many PCs you put over a tank they are still limited by how effective they penetrate the water as depth increases. Simply having more PCs...

Placing 1000ws of PCs over a standard 10G tank is not applicable. The size of PC bulbs limit you to how many bulbs can fit over the tank.

We ordered some tonga fusion for our store awhile back. It cures up nicely. Most of the growth on it is coralline, and some sponges. I don't think it will stink up your house all that much or any...

I am leaning towards Gracilaria curtissae. I think it is a beautiful macro and looks good in a display tank.

This is not uncommon with new frags. The corals you have should eventually adapt to your light and start to grow upward. Some exceptions would be table acros and monti caps.
