Well I had about 15 corals from my 46 that were transferred to my 120g about 3 monhts ago. They have all grown. Then a guy close to me took down his 120 and gave me a super price on his corals and fish. I put about 15 corals and 5 fish in my tank over a week's spand, about a month ago. They have since grown and are doing better in my tank than his. Mind you my lighting is good and water quality is perfect. Plus all my reactors which he only had a phosban.

Two of which were green tubed anemones, they are doing great, i think one is about to split. The pulsing Xena's I got are doing absolutely fantastic. The acan is more colorful then ever and has split heads already!

The huge frogspawn he gave me is even bigger now than it was.

No not until you add salt to it

That's a testament to your water quality. Most simply don't have that and a new tank it would be very difficult.

A happy tank is a good thing. Last thing I look at night, first thing in the morning.

i am curious as to why you are concerned about the collection spots instead of the actual species.

I think you can stock a tank either way. If all the species come form a co-existing reef location, it seems to me that you have a better change of blending the life without issues. Water parameters and temperatures should be similar. Etc.
