ID please...

Could this be montipora capricornis? If so, I recently bought this today and did coral dip for almost 30 minutes and placed it on middle tank. Is this suitable place and also running jebao rw-15 as waterflow with two Chinese black boxes currently running 40% blues to acclimate the coral and I hope it's montipora

Thanks, is 30 to 40% blues and middle placement is sufficient?

Depends on depth of the tank and how high off the water column the lights are.

I have 75 gallon tank which is 21 inch deep and my Monti is sitting at about around 11 or 12 inch off the bottom and my led light is hung 12 to 14 inches above the water

Might need more juice, just turn things up slowly over time and see how it reacts.

How much blue/white ratio ends up being for your taste. But when it comes to how much lighting and intensity they are on should be done over time as not to shock your corals. Think walking out of a dark house at noon on a snow covered day.

Makes sense, thanks for your input and comments it helps. Glad there are a forum where people help each other out and not bash one another
