I have a 29gal tank and have just put in two of my first coral. The tank is fairly well inhabited with a few fish, some hermits maybe a snail or two plus some feather dusters. The tank is setup with a refugium and a skimmer as well.
My question is, will the marine orbits USA light be enough to sustain the tank? The two corals I got are a star polyp(I think) and a toadstool leather. See attached pictures.
Also, how long does it usually take for corals to adjust to their new homes? I assume it can take days. I've been seeing a lot of opening and closing for both since they were brought home, yesterday. The polyp stays somewhat open whereas the toadstool will come out then go back in come night. The toadstool really came out when I shut off the return pump for feeding.
