Yea that should be ok but for harder corals I believe its 3 watts per gallon I could be wrong though..

How big is the tank? Are you sure its a t5? I;ve never seen an 11 watt bulb in either T5 or T8. What kind of fixture is it? It could be a special brand that requires special bulbs.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

I'm still scared of zoas, as they are poisonous, and if I have to frag one one day...

Just wear gloves, thats my plan. Plus I ordered some coral tools and one is a long set of tweezer like things so I dont even have to touch them really.

I know, I will still get them, but small colonies all zoas have the same care requirements right? And with button polyps?

Wow, I didn't know this! Good thing I know now. I'll get some gloves and some goggles or a face mask lol.

But can it be in the water too? Cuz I always have scratches on my arms and if I stick my arm all the way down in there....

Oh, they arent t5's they are compact flourescents.

They shoudl be fine for that tank size and many easy to care for corals.

Well the plan is as many mushrooms as I can fit in few hermits somethink thats small but good at cleaning (haven't worked that one out yet) and some frags of some kind. Tanks just about cycled now so a pwc today and test 2mora and might be able to start adding do you think mushrooms first?? Do you add corals like fish one at time?
