Thanks. I found something for my tank by WingoLEDs called "savior". It's a 12w replacement system that fits under the fluval hood so it looks stock. Apparently I have enough light to grow just about any corals I could think of. It has daytime/moonlighting, and the guy that makes them lives a few miles away. Hopefully I can pick one up this week and get everything going. I'm just waiting for him to call me back.

Is it normal for the LR to turn white in some spots during cycling?

The algae is just dying in some spots due to the cycle. It will grow back after the cycle.

Yep. I think its just the die off of some Coraline and algae.

Sounds great, can't wait to see what happens. I know that mushrooms (low light corals) can be beautiful like the blue, purple, and neon greens. Personally, I don't like brownish or yellowish coral because it blends in with the rock. Corals that pop and catch your eye are well worth the money. I'll be following :P

Yeah I've been reading up on corals A LOT to see what I'm willing to deal with. I dont know how much I want to get into hand feeding, but I guess I'll see what happens.

I just looked at the tank, and I feel like the white is spreading pretty wildly...I'm reading in some places that I should have my lights on for some part of the day...Is this true at all? Right now I dont have them on at all..

you must get some yellow colony polyps they are bright yellow super hardy they spread quick and require low light
