As far as easy corals, mushrooms, leather corals, and zoanthids are pretty forgiving. Both mushrooms and zoas come in lots of colors as well. Mushrooms also have lots of differnt patterns and textures (spots, stripes, smooth, frilly, etc.).

As far as the light you referenced:
The brittle star is probably fine.

Its a 500gph pump.
How are you managing water changes? LFS , the additional test kit is on its way.
As far as the light you referenced: its a t5 HO, it has 6 96watt bulbs
2x 10k bulbs, 2x 50/50 actinic/ 10k bulbs, 2x actinic bulbs

The brittle star is probably fine. In that case happy to have him.

Hey Raul,
I think rutrag is meaning how much flow is actually getting to the tank. A 500gph pump only puts this out in a horizontal line. When the pump has to pump water vertically, it loses some power. This is known as head loss. So a 500 gph pump may only be putting out 350, with a 4 foot head loss.
You should be able to go on your pumps website, to see a chart showing you what the pump puts out at various heights.
Just thought you should know.

350 is what the chart shows if I measure the height of the tank.

Idk why my autocorrect does bristle instead of brittle. On a sad note took the fox face back wasn't looking to good. Traded him for a mimic tang. I heard that time of tang can be a bit aggressive?
