Any LPS under CFs?

I have several softies in my tank, and they are all doing well, the xenia has doubled in size in less than a month.

I have been eyeing some LPS corals at the store latley.....are there any that will be ok under Compact Flouresents(9.6 watts per gal)?

Also, the tank is small and I am concerned with sweepers....are there any options?

LOTS! There are many LPS corals that will do great under CF lighting. Take your pick.

Some people are like slinkies...they serve no real purpose yet can still bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs!:p
Have a great day! Brian

Agreed. I have a torch that is under 4 wpg Compact Flourescent. It's doing great. The sweepers are a bit of a concern though. I'd be sure to try and leave 5 inches or so around the coral. Varies depending on species.
