going reef!

Very slowly but surely. I got sponges that came on my LR that is spreading and picked up a yellow polyp rock today. Any fairly inexpensive addition IDEAS? Oh I got a mushroom rock too that has some other stuff on it. I'd like to get something for my clown to host too.

Most softies will stay cheap. Get different color mushrooms. Maybe a leather. What kind of lights do you have.

Your clowns will host anything. Mine are hosting a power head at the moment.

I have a hagen life-glo T5 (6700k) and a marineland hidden led lighting system (6500k white & 460nm blue). I don't know much as far as lighting. Just recently got those leds. The Guy at the lfs said it was good for a lot of the corals and my mushrooms have been doing great. My tank stays around 79į.

I would switch that 6700k bulb to a 10000 or 12000k.
