What coral(s) would you put there?

I have a large flat rock that is mid-way up the tank and directly below the sump return - so I'm looking for something that needs moderate lighting and can handle high flow. Suggestions?

I think a nice frogspawn or torch would look good there.

I have another spot in mind for a frogspawn or torch - I think this flat rock is too high flow for those!

I agree that a LPS coral like a frogspawn it would not be a good area if it is high flow area. The high flow might cause tissue damage which inturn would cause brown jelly disease on the coral.

Well if you had a little more light I would suggest an SPS. With PC lighting I don't think that would be a good idea.

You could try some Digitata or a lower light Acro. I can't tell how high up that rock is in your tank and how high off the water your lights are. You could try an Acro frag and see what happens. I kept acros and a few other SPS when I had PC lighting, they just didn't grow like they do now under MH.

The tank is 20" tall so the rock is roughly 10" from the lights. Which acros were happiest in your tank when you had PC lighting? How do I tell which ones need less light? And is digitata the same as what liveaquaria.com calls "digitate acropora"?

I have an acro that has been dubbed Ziggy's Acro because I have sold a lot of it over the last couple of years. This acro has grown well in all the lighting conditions my system has gone through. It is actually an ORA Scripps Acro if you want to look that up.

Do you have a link to the coral you are talking about on Liveaquaria?
