I really like my cabbage leather (I think that's what it is). Here is a small pic.

Goniporas are a very nice coral but they do not last long in our tanks.. They will slowly die over time, you may get a year out of it before it dies.
Not sure what 75 in cana money is but I can get one for 35-40..
They are not a super high light coral..

I would avoid the flower pot coral.

I had a goniopora and it lasted about 2 months with MH lighting and ideal conditions. This is a coral that should be left in the wild.

I gave my LFS heck for selling it to me and they have stopped carrying it. Too many others to choose from to mess with it.

In a 90 its a deep tank so you will need to move things up and down on the LR till you find a spot they like.
The kenyas will do well anywhere in the tank. the shroons can go lover, I would put the bubble mid way and the same with the colt.. The GSP may need to go med to high..
Again alot depends on the lighting conditions that the coral is used too. I would start with a few hardy corals and then go from there..

Kenyas and shroons and yellow polyps are good starter croals.

Patience is a virtue. I`ve had some corals take a couple days to come out and be normal. Definitely going to need more than 3 hours. I believe those green star polyps are sensitive anyway. Let me know what they are doing tomorrow.
