ok so i just got my new lights today....

ok so i just got my new lights, from hellolights.com its a 28 watt 50/50 compact fluorecscent, and i have my 15watt standard on the front as well. which gives me 4.3 watts per gallon.

i also have 10lbs of LR

a 84 gph powerhead

standard heater

and a hob filter, (85 gph)

i have two little perculas, 5 hermits, and bunch of snails

my tank is 10 gallons and 20 x 10 x 12

my parameters are great, ammonia 0, nitrite 0, nitrate <10, specific gravity 1.024.

my tank is almost a month old.

my question is can i add a green tip torch coral yet? or should i wait till my tank is more mature?

i'd hate to spend all that money on something that wouldn't do well yet. TIA!

I feel its safe for you to add the coral as long as your tanks is stable. How long has your ammonia and nitrite been zero?

i used the coctail shrimp method and it cycled in a week! so it's been stable for about 4 weeks or so.
