I think about 95% of the folks here have a Koralia in their tanks... You'll be fine!

okay but would the light be strong enough if its torwards the top? and is pacific east aqua culture or antlantis aquarium good for livestock???

Honestly there is no formula about how much live rock u need. Depends really on how you want your aquascape to turn out. You will get more filteration with more rock but if u have too much u'll make a rock wall which makes things worst in the long run. the rock walls usually have dead spots where water flow is almost dead which cause horrible water problems and alage blooms if nutrients are released from those areas. So just make sure there is sufficent water flow.
