I have pc. I keep xenia, gsp, torches, frogspawn, a plate, ricordia, mushrooms, cloves, finger leather.

All seem to be doing fantastically with my light

Flake gave a pretty good list there. I might suggest a bubble coral.

Just watch where you put the frogspawn and torch as they are agressive and need to be placed away from other coral.

The frogspawn looks cool, but everyone does say they are very aggressive. I have seen pictures of the bubble coral and I think they look awesome, but I thought they were difficult to care for? Is that true?

Here you are Crick.

Looks to me like they are a low to medium light coral and are pretty darn easy to take care of. HTH!

Yeah they are really nice looking. Just be careful when placing it in your tank. Just like the other corals, they need space. Because although they may look small when you put them in or when acclimating them.. once they start to feel comfortable they start to spread out and open up. If too close to other corals, they could damage each other. And we sure wouldn't want that.

Euphyllia coral (frogspawn, torch, & anchor) will sting other coral near them with "sweeper" tentacles thus, they need to be placed away from other coral.

Yup yup. I made the mistake of putting a torch coral in the center of my little 46g tank because it made a great "centerpiece" coral. It loved it there and as it grew it could reach just about anyone it wanted to! They do NOT play well with others!

Let's just say that the torch is no longer in my tank, but in fragging it out (it was a branching type) and selling it back to different LFSs, I more than got my money back!

The whole euphyllia family (as well as the bubbles) are great corals, and great for beginners - but just make sure you put them towards a corner where they can just be by themselves.

I went to the LFS today to look at some corals. I ended up getting some. I have a small Xenia frag, and a one inch GSP frag and a very small Zoa frag, just three polyps on it. The Xenia is a nice size and looks great. How long do you guys think it will be for the GSP and Zoa to grow?
