A. hyacinthus

What sort of flow requirements are required to keep Table Tops?
I have a 20 gal and was thinking of using a Koralia Nano pointed directly at it from the opposite side of the tank.
The tank will have very little rock, very little.

Someone told me that Hyacinthus would brown if alternating flow is not provided.

this is one of the most difficult coral to keep. A lot of indirect flow and a lot of light. It is very sensitive to changes in your water chemistry so if you have a 20 gal this is not a coral for you to try. If you like table then efflos will be your best bet.

I will trade my golf swing for your tyree frag.

Ive found hyacinthus do well with flow blowing across them horzontally a few inches above.
One day I'll be so rich I'll have a closed loop and Tunzes to mix my new saltwater!
