Yeah I'm thinking no go. If it decides to take a walk I don't want to risk all the other things getting stung.

It could also get caught up in the powerheads or heaven forbid, get over the back wall. That'd be a big mess..lol

Do some more research and see where you are then. I just can give my own opinion and what I'd do, could be right could be wrong...

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

EEP! Lol I can live without one. I'll have a ton of tentacle type corals so maybe my clown will take a liking to one

I think you've seen my torch coral, looks exactly like a nem. My clowns don't host it and I'm happy about that. They can injure a coral or themselves by hosting a coral sometimes.

Do you guys think I could put an encrusting montipora and an acropora? On LA it says they need medium light.

I wou;d take the chance on a monitpora but maybe wait and see how the corals respond before trying a acropora.

I think the monti is a good idea. Of all the SPS corals I think it is the easiest (gives me a sense of accomplishment). They don't need a lot of light just lots of calcium. LOL Before I got mine, I wasn't big on the SPS corals. Now I want more.
