If we put zoas near the top of the tank, like on the arch, would they get too much light?

They'll be fine but it's best to put them at the bottom of the arch and leave the top for SPS and LPS

Yeah man. It really is cool how they kill things with their "pistol" though. I dont know how it works but its cool. Youtube it when you have a chance.

Much too soon IMO. I recommend waiting a minimum of a month between fish additions. Your tank is still VERY new. Reef tanks take a long time to get established- it's a whole different ballgame than FW. Rushing into purchases only decreases your chances of success. I see people recommending a fish a week sometimes... for a marine tank, this is a BAD IDEA.

Doesn't matter if it "looks" friendly. Triggerfish look friendly.

Frogspawn isn't a terribly demanding coral. It should do fine.

No photosynthetic coral is going to get too much light under what you have, even if it is high in the tank.

Thanks for all the help!! 2-3 more weeks for the next fish..but could we add coral or inverts this weekend? Small bioload right?

Yea i think theyd be fine in our lame lighting, but what about the 4 bulb T5? that might be too much..what do you think?
