What all can I put under them?
Someone said you can put a BTA if it's up high enough. Is that true?
Thanks

You can keep most soft corals and LPS under stock lights. I'm going to try a GBTa under stock lights when my tank matures a bit.

Cool. So it's possible as long as parameters are pristine?

I think so. Once you replace the stock lights (they need to be replaced after 6 months) you may get it.

I had a small GBTA in a 14 biocube for five weeks under stock lights. He hung out UNDER the live rock. After reading some of the discussions here I started worrying about the lighting even though he was doing good. I got a bright LED floodlight and let it shine through the tank on him. After that he started moving every night and last night got sucked up in the ph. I should have left him alone.

Oh no. Chopped to pieces. He was perfectly happy until I started trying to "help". I fed a small piece of shrimp every ten days. Clownfish were hosting. He was bubbled up and seemed to be content.
