i have some dt's phytoplankton but i wont get much food from my fish feeding as there is only a lion fish in there and he only gets feed every 2 - 3 days and leaves no food floating around.

I cannot remember what your light set up is but if that's up to par, the DT's should be a decent enough suppliment for a toadstool leather.

Cheers

That's going to be a problem. The toadstool leather is a zooxanthellae coral and requires much more intensity than NO lights will be able to provide. I would speed up the PC purchase as well as moving the leather as close to the lights as possible. I would not suggest purchasing any more corals until the lights have been taken care of. It is quite possible the leather will not fair well for long...

Cheers
Steve

Since you have a 70g, I would probably recommend speeding up the PC purchase as well. Here are some common care requirments.
