corals will close up when they have had enough/too much lighting. I cannot imagine this would be a good thing. This is just my thougths on it, I would also think nuisance algaes would become problematic.

I think it would stress the corals. Increase algae and possibly cause heat issues.

Ditto. That is where the coralline I sent you came from.

Let me clarify, this is not something I am doing. I am a very experienced reef keeper (please see my site ranking for those who are no familiar with me) and would not try something without extensive research. I was just thinking I had never heard of anyone doing it and I was curious if it was possible. Thanks for your input.
