Hey probably picking these up on Friday I need to know how to care for them I have a basic understanding but would like to learn more

One is a 8+ head frogspawn
One is a 3'' green birdsnest
One is a ricordea

I am currently running a 250 w metal halide with 2 65 w antics

Birdsnest higher in the tank, medium or higher

FS medium light so middle and medium flow

Ric is low light and low flow

What else do you want to know?

Nope, all of those are photosynthetic. No need for anything but good lighting and waterflow

Give the FS a little distance from other corals at first, they can send out some very long sweepers and kill surrounding corals

I have both of these and never target feed them. They will get all they need from the lighting and water column.
