Thank you! Only problem I'm having is I don't think my green leather is opening as much as it should. It's Been in there about a week. Idk if it's to high up with the halides or if it's shedding it's coat getting used to the tank still. Anyone have any ideas?

Did you acclimate him lower down with those powerful lights? Maybe its light shock.

Here's a picture of it. It's not very green either except way up on the tips. Think it just needs time in the system maybe.

Yeah I started it down low. But even still it's only a 10 gallon. So I also raised my halide 8 inches above the surface of the tank.

Yeah it might be light shock. I would move it to a lower location and gradually move it back to where it is now.

If no improvement I may move it to a corner and shade it a bit to get indirect light. And then I'll be able to add some SPS to the center of my display. Most of these corals will end up in a larger build thats in the planning. Will be getting a 125 drilled in about 6-7 months when I move. I can't wait to start on that reef!

Yeah i found a 210 gallon that I really like but I feel it's kinda tall to be working with. Especially if a coral falls lol. Plus I'd need stronger lighting. But yeah I figured I'd start planning it now and collecting things like skimmer, pump, lighting and all the other good stuff. It's exciting to go back to a large reef. I wish I had pictures of my old 72 gallon.
