If I remeber correctly you have a 12 bulb fixture right? If so, I think based on placement of the corals you should see good growth. My lights do very well with most of my corals, some grow at astounding rates like my montipora, GSP and my paly's.

Just keep the water as perfect as you can get it and you will do well.

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

Great, thanks!

My fixture is actually only eight bulbs.

I also think I will add a Red Candy Cap Montipora to my list for that May order, maybe GSP too. For fish I was thinking of maybe ordering my Yellow Tang (small), and maybe 1 or 2 smaller fish (not sure which ones though).

The midas and engineer are great suggestions. Just be prepared for a changing sandscape if you get an engineer. lol Mine is a big softie and kinda shy, sweet.

I was actually considering a Midas! Do they only eat phytoplankton, or do they eat other foods too?

Both of the ones I had ate frozen food. No special requirements at all as far as I know.

Carey, sorry to bother you about this again, but what was that netting that you ordered for the 125g called again? I know you linked it to me but I can't seem to find it......

Thanks!

Fantastic, thanks!

I need to order some of that for the 125g and 55g! The group buy is going until this Tuesday, right?
