I'm not sure about the shark. And do you want stony or soft coral? Or both? But you need 1-2 lbs LR per gallon. The more the better in my opinion. And the more pourus the better. What kind of light do you have? You got test kits for calcium kh mag and phosphate? And how much flow do you have? Other than that just make sure your parameters are close to perfect and stay the same. You'll also need to get a dip solution to dip the coral before it goes in. Your LFS should have some.
