Hey Nu-Nu, how's it going? Sorry about the closure, that sux! What exactly is the Hurricanes coral? Is it a Chalice?
I would think the birdsnest and Monti would do pretty well at mid-tank, maybe a little higher for the Monti. If the Hurricane is a Chalice, they do well with a little lower light, so probably mid- tank or lower.

Thanks dude! And yes the hurricane is a chalice i think so medium would be good? Thanks! I will put the other sps corals on top, my red monti is on top right now, the purple monti will probably go next to it, or in that same area! We are getting all these corals for free, we just have to pay shipping! We know the guy and he is very kind and generous
