It should do OK under T5 lighting. I was just reading about Kurt`s birdnest under PC lighting and it was doing great.

I was just going to comment about that! Yup... your birds nest will do just fine under that lighting. I have a green ORA birdsnest that is under about 200W of power compact and it's going gangbusters.

I had some under VHOs, both pink and green and they both made it about 4 months or so. Both colonys ended up bleaching out. The Acro's, monti's and milli have proliferated, so Id say you have a 50/50 shot using fluro technology, perhaps even placing them higher up on the reef structure. GL!

Happy Reefing!

Birdsnest is a pretty hardy coral and will do well as the others have said under a variety of lighting. I've kept it under PC, and a combination of MH VHO and T5. The only difference will be how intense the colors get based on the lighting. You should do just fine with T5s though!!
