I've mainly been checking out LA for ideas... but I'm thinking a birdsnest and a acro or some sort... I want to try to find one bigger than a 2" frag. Looking at 4.5-5" or better if possible.

I'm really trying to find some nice colors - Blues, and yellows, possibly a pink birdsnest.

My entire tank is purple from the rocks, so I don't need any more of that - I've got lots of browns and greens all over the place. The mushrooms i'm going to add will be red... so I need Orange, yellow, blue, and pink.

I've got about $175-200 budget for this month, so I hopefully can get a Birdsnest, acro, and possibly a few mushroom frags.

Are sponges difficult? I've only seen an orange fan sponge, and really all I knew is that it couldn't be exposed to air.

I have read mixed some say they r hard and some say they r easy but the way I see it is if ur tank is stable you should be able to grow them with little to no problem

I have had a few volunteers show up, but they were yellow ones. I failed to keep the red and blue ones alive for more than a year, but I am pretty lazy, someone motivated could surely do better. Total filter feeders, so that might not work in a SPS tank where nutrient levels have to remain so low. But there is plenty of data out there on keeping them.

TLTGF, I have a couple of jump offs every week with my mushrooms. I was told when I got my 1st that it wouldn't be long until I was throwing them out. LoL So true. But getting to my point if you want some purple shrooms next time I have a few jumpers I'll be more than happy to send them to you if want them. I just toss them out the back door when they abandon there rock. I want to thin the group & add some other colors.

That may be one of the most fantastic things I've heard. I'll send you a PM.

Huge thanks!

Hey guys this has nothing to do with the current posts, but my stand is to the point where I need my light to make any necessary cuts to my canopy. I can't get any definitive answers on led lighting for a 54 corner. I'm looking at the ecotech radion but am not sure if it would provide sufficient coverage. I definitely would prefer to go led and 1 unit at that. My canopy is 12" tall. Any suggestions?
