that is not enough for any sps corals
most leathers would be ok the frogspawn would be ok and the toad stool would be ok
you would want to have MH or VHO for the sps frags as they wont keep their color under pc (normally ) some do keep it sucessfully tho

I would say the first 4 would not make it. You`ll need Mh`s for those. The last 2 should be OK. Your answers Steve are in her signature.

You can keep just about anything under that lighting that you have....except sps. I don't know enough about sps to say one way or the other, but there are certain species that you can keep under PC lights as long as you keep them close to the water surface. Upgrade to MH lights and you've got basically unlimited options (in regards to light, I mean). You can click the myinfo button under me to see what I keep in my 29 gallon under 130 watts PC lights.

Frogspawn would be just fine, as would the toadstool, like said.

Thanks. I didn't know I had that turned of. I just thought it was a very clean looking board.

I would avoid the Acroporids. The Montipora, leather, toadstool, and frogspawn should all be ok.
