Hahn has made some good points about changes in lighting, and I wouldn't be surprised if growth changes with my corals under LEDs are actually related to dimmer lighting.

I've been having what I think is the same problem with my ER RS180. Had it a few months. Was getting this dark sludge on the side of the cup, but very little foam/substance in the cup. Have...

michika, if you didn't use any old sand, then I assume you used new sand or went with no sand. This was a killer for me (my secale mentioned earlier in this thread). Added a bluespot jawfish to the...

In terms of the visual quality of the light, MHs put a little more shimmer into the tank, crisper. I use 20K bulbs, and really like the look of bright blue shimmery light in the tank. But the...

I usually take a piece of LR out of the tank, dry it a little, and place a bead of superglue gel on it, and stick whatever coral I have to it, polyps up. Wait 30 seconds, and place it in the tank.

One way to make more money with less space in a small frag tank/operation is to grow LE corals that are expensive and in high demand. Tyree chalices would be a good example. They are very...

I agree, liverock rubble is a good idea. I have that and a tiny bit of sand in mine. But then again, my frag tank is attached to my main tank, so it really didn't need to cycle anyway. I like the...

I agree, soft open brains do better in the sand and without too much flow.

My Solaris H4 is more than bright enough to keep SPS and clams, and I do not even have it on the brightest settings (about 75% at the moment). I have a variety of acros (over 20), about 10 montis,...

On such a small tank I might go with with MHs and actinics or T5s rather than LEDs just due to the cost. If money is not really an issue, go with LEDs due to the versatility (You can adjust the...

Looks like the Blasto M. overgrew the aipstasia bc you can still see it in the new pic, lower left. That stuff can be a pain. Copperbanded butterfly fish are the best IMO for getting rid of it, but...

I would put it low in the tank with very little flow on it and not too much light. Lugol's dip probably could help, but could hurt if too much.

I believe they do well under low light, and can be acclimated to bright light. My guess is that it would do fine. Feed it. Good price in my opinion.
