Awesome score, now what.


Recommended Posts

I met a guy who was breaking down his tank and bought some stuff, small frags and all. He called me today and offered me a piece of ATL rainbow stylophora for free as it broke off his main colony and wanted to get rid of it. It was huge bigger than my hand, I had to break off a branch to get into the quart cup I brought to take it home.


I have a question on placement and flow from anyone who has experience with this coral. The previous owner had it under a 250 watt MH about 18 inches from the light. I have twin 150 watt HQI bulbs and was wondering on how far ot near it should be before I glue it down. Also should I consider high flow or low? Temporary shading or no?


Thanks anyone who responds.

High flow for sure.


As for lighting, I'd start it off fairly high without permanently fixing it anywhere. That way you can move it until you find it's "happy place".
