Meteor Shower Coral

Can a meteor shower coral survive with stock biocube lighting: 2 compact fluorescents?

IMO, it would probably survive, but that's about it.

My LFS told me it would do OK in somewhat lower light, how low? I don't know
How many total watts are the CF's? And how deep is the cube?
Not being LED, watts per gallon will give you a rough estimate.

Send a message via MSN to mr_X
I think it will be ok. Are you keeping that anemone in your avatar under those lamps? If so, the cyphastrea will be fine.

That should be alright to sustain it, but don't know how much growth you'll see. I get good growth out of mine, but it's under relatively high light.
