Got my first frags

Okay so on an impulse purchase today at a fragswap, i bought two frags of waving hand anthelia. I put them at the top of my tank near my one small PC light. i got an icecap 660 and am just waiting on some money to get the bulbs. im gonna be running 4 ATI T5s. Just wondering will the anthelias be okay under this lighting for now? I sure hope so. Please let me know what i should do

Anthelia is one of the lower light corals, so you should be fine. They do spread fast so make sure you can contain it once you upgrade your lights.

I have one going up the back wall of my tank, so all I have to do is scrape it off once it starts getting to close to the rocks.

No need to dose. They grow fast enough as it is.
