SPS corals in a 125g


Well, I have a 125g tank...right now it only has some mushrooms, an ocellaris clown, a firefish, a sailfin tang and a yellow tang.

I have it set up with 2 96W 50/50 power compacts, 2 55W 50/50 power compacts and 3 compact fluorecent 32W bulbs and 6 lunar lights for nighttime watching. I believe this totals 398W.

My question is, which, if any SPS corals can I keep under this lighting and would it be a problem if I added an angelfish to the tank, I mean..would he pick on SPS corals? thanks...

There are very very few sps corals that would do under that light IMO

I have never had and angel but from what I have:
Reef Compatible: With Caution
I believe, some have had success, but, if I remember correctly, they may nip as they get older.
Age is relative, you are only as old as you act....of course, this works in reverse....

Questions loved, heeded advice greatly appreciated!

I agree that you might not have enough light.


You can view many of my fish and corals in my photo albums in my profile.
