Favite Brain Coral

Do you guys think it would be alright to place a favite brain coral on the substrate of a 29 gallon tank with 135 watts of pc (19 inches high)?

Should be fine, but I'm not positive.

It should be OK as brains should be on the substrate anyway.

I would like to add a brian to my tank, do they have sweepers?

Also, I am fighting a little algae problem, and I dont want it to get surrounded by hair algae on my substrate...I almost have it under control, but it blooms quickly when it does.

Could a brain fight off hair algae or would it easily become over run by it if it was on the bottom?

Most species of favia do have sweepers.

Eric Borneman's Coral book is a nice reference. Good to have IMO.

I would take care of your algea problem before you get the brain.
