Can you keep acros with soft corals?

Can you keep acros with soft corals?

hi i have got a soft coral tank with muchrooms, polyps, pulse coral, plate coral, trumpet coral etc......

is it alright to put a acro frag in here or would i have to take out all the soft corals?

i just heard somewhere i might have to because of chemical warfare?

thanx andrew

I have no experience with SPS's, but I would think that would be ok. It will need a lot more light and water movement than your softies and LPS's are used to so you need to take that into account when you are placing it.

Perhaps someone else who knows a little more about SPS's can help you out more than I can.

This is common among all corals. I run carbon to help remove that junk.

If you maintain regular waterchanges and run carbon in your system at least a few days per month, it will be fine.
