Talking frog spawn

i have a 40 gallon breeder salt water with coralife 192 watt light hood and i want to know what types of of coral i could put in here. I have one xenia that is doing great and i would like to get a frog spawn frag and i also was wondering what other corals would be good for this set up. Thanks ahead of time!

Any LPS should do well if your zenia is doing fine. Any anemone. Any mushroom. I would not try and SPS.

I would say most soft and LPS corals. Frogspawn should do OK. Try a bubble coral.

I wouldn't attempt any anemones with just PC lighting. Any LPS or soft corals should be good. Some of the SPS that are tolerant of less light (stylophora, seriatopora, etc) would be OK as long as they're placed high in the tank.

Yes I`d say you dont have enough intensity with PC lighting for anenome`s. Just my opinion.

Keep that xenia well trimmed, I have seen it take over tanks. I also agree that frogspawn would be good for yout tank but no anemone.

Not watts per gallon, intensity has more to do with PAR and how much usable light penetrates into the water and how deep. watts per gallon is becoming obsolete with the use of good lights such as T5HO or Halides.

I think the 40 breeder is only 13" tall. So with a tank that shallow i think you would have success with softies, LPS, and even a good portion of SPS. Some of the more picky SPS may give you a bit of a problem but i would think most will be ok so close to the lights.

If you went with a bubble tip anemone i think you would be fine. Some of the more difficult species i would probably avoid not only because of light but just keeping stable enough parameters for such a particular invert in a tank that size is very challenging.
