Like I said if you put holes in the doors it's no issue, if it was your stand would collapse when the door is open. Glad to hear the fan worked for you. Once summer hits here I may have to do some cooling so ill keep the fan in mind. Unfortunately I don't have a sump so the fan will be visible.

Yeah, I was able to point the house fan at the corner above my tank on the ceiling and that worked without open doors and it kept my room nice to, lol

Algae is almost exclusive to that rock so with a few more days and water changes hopefully it will be gone

Got a rock with some orange and green zoas on it w/ a Kenya tree... I really don't like the Kenya tree when the time comes how could I get rid of it, hopping to remove it fully

Just cut it off at the base, as close as you can to the rock, with a razor blade. Then possibly scrape anything left, off of the rock, to try to prevent it from coming back.

Thanks

I was told to acclimate them in the middle of the tank 10" up... Can I drop them to about 4" in a week if the flow is relatively close to the same.

I'm just asking because I already have a rock by itself do the zoas shouldn't spread I would guess since its not touching the structure?

If the tree is invasive will it kill other corals or some it's near?

Yeah, you should be able to drop them down, but it depends on the amount of light you've got. I would do it and watch them to see how they react over a few days time.
With the Kenya tree, they can proliferate quickly. They won't seek out another coral, but they will compete with one if given the chance. As long as you keep it away from the zoos, you would be fine to leave it in the tank. If you see it is spreading too much, you can just remove what you don't like.

That should be enough light for at least soft corals.
If the Kenya tree is right in the middle of the zoos, than it should be removed, or it will grow over them and kill them. Just cut it out with a knife.
