Nice light!

The LPS corals I'd keep in the middle. They can be stressed in higher light.

The ricordea you could place a little higher up. They can absorb more light.

The mushrooms and polyps as well I'd try and keep down low.

Now you can get some SPS to keep up top there and you should be good to go.

I think this a very good asessment on where they need to be.

Thanks for the advice.

I made my last trip to the fish store today. I purchased some seachem garlic stuff, 20 turbo snails, and a maroon clown replacement.

I'm still not familiar with which corals are LPS/SPS etc, I just know the requirements of each one.

As of right now, I kept the hairy mushrooms, ricrodia, starburst polyps, multicolored polyps near the top. Toadstool near the middle, finger leather middle, one finger leather on sand, moon coral on sand, frogspawn/torch in bottom 1/3 (not sand), green mushrooms leaning against glass on sand.



My tank will be upgraded in April. Probably to 30 tall. I could also consider a 5' long tank, but I'd need to purchase a top and just rest the light on top of it somehow (elevated). I'm probably just going to get a 48x24widex30tall with corner overflow. Also will have 30-40g sump.


I believe this will be my final stocklist as well:
Pinktail Trigger
Yellow Tang
PBT (if lives)
Rabbitfish
Maroon Clown
Possibly a goby



As you can see, the room is quite a mess right now so it's difficult to take closer pictures. I've also been pretty busy so I haven't had much time. I will definitely get in closer to take some nice pictures within the next few days. Everything is so much brighter

I tried moving my toadstool leather to a lower down spot in the substrate. It shriveled up when I moved it but hopefully it will adjust and do fine. Here are some more pics. The anemone is doing better than ever before! Fuller color and more tentacle extension.

Here's a higher quality pic of my moon coral. Hopefully the uploader lets it show in high quality. Also frogspawn.

I'm having troubles getting the front glass clean, especially down near the bottom since I have rubble there. I think the plan is to get a razorblade of some kind and one of those rough sponges, and just go at it with my hand to get the glass clean.

If anyone has picture requests/closeup requests etc just ask!
