well with the shady area it is doing a lot better. i might just keep the coral there after it heals and i can take the shady area away. it will still get a tiny bit of shade, just not as much. i might have an idea for my own little fan set up now.

Technically you do not have to have actinics and I only mentioned them since most people seem to use them in conjunction. Once you get a timer or set it to the appropriate time frame the brain should be able to slowly bounce back and get used to the intesity; The green morphs usually tolerate more light intensity than that of the red/blue morphs. Repositioning by your rockwork (still on substrate) where there's an overhang or creating a small bommie with some coverage would also work.

I have the same coral in my tank. Mine is out in the open on the sand bed under the MHs. Granted my tank is a lot deeper then yours is. Do your clowns mess with it at all? I had an issue before I got the RBTA of my clowns rubbing in it and actually tearing the tissue. I had to cover mine to keep them away from it until I got an anemone.

innovator: i got the green variant and im considering the actinics but im not sure yet cuz idk if i can find a way to fit them to the hood besides in the halide chamber thing.
ziggy: clown rarely hovers over it but will just a little sometimes. i think my goby is more of an issue, it loves to sivt sand and swim over it at the same time getting sand on it.

The sand being dropped on it could very easily cause the irritation you are seeing.

Sounds good to me. I have some corals that would do well in your system. I'll be posting an ad in the classified section soon.
