He means a long tank crister. Remember, long tanks aren't as tall as a regular ones.

So what should I be asking if I'm new to corals. I know a little about mushroom corals, button polyps, I ask you all for your advice opinions so I can plan right on reef tank.

Reefs are simple. It is all lighting and flow. I prefer a pristine water for mine, as I enjoy sps corals more. So I run an oversized protein skimmer since I have to feed more often. But basically, depends on what it is you want to keep. Look around and research. Find what you like and you can figure it out from there.

Those are soft corals. In terms of an anemone, they require high light like sps and clams. I wouldn't even consider putting one into a system until it has been running for 6 months to a year.
