New stonies ... need help

Ok again... 60gal with 4x65 PC lighting......

I went to the LFS and the guy HOOKED us up... I bought a cluster of "blue" zoos, three open brains, and two branches of "candy" coral ... all for like $50 bucks.... woohoo.....

I'm hoping to get a little bit of taylored advice for placement.... for example... would the brains be alright on the substrate??? (enough light) .... placement for the candy coral.... I know what to do with the zoos.... but I need help with the other.........

any and all advice is appreciated........

All the LPS you mentioned would do best on the substrate. Med-low water flow and do not place them too close to each other unless identical species. They will otherwise consume their neighbors. :P

Merry Christmas
Cheers

Believe it or not, yes. Your light will support more than you'd think. These types of LPS do not need highly intense light and the depth of a 60 gal tank is not outside the reach of these lights.

Cheers
Steve
