Are there any corals that give a nice Red or orange glow?

I have some bright orange zoas. I wouldn't call it a "glow" per se, but they're really orange!!

Zoas, Mushrooms, LPS, SPS, Sea Fans lots of things can be red or orange. its just the matter of planning your corals before you ever buy any. In my nano I have every coral I want in it mapped out so that the colors will play off each other well and I dont end up with to much of the same color.

Sorry about your fish.

So 30l is about 8g, according to my converting app. that's gonna really limit the choices. Have you thought about a pistol/goby pair? Don't really swim around much, but cool to watch build and dig. Or if you don't want the pistol, then just a small goby. There are some really small blennies. Or a Firefish. Anything that would be happy in a 8g probably won't swim around lots.

Yeah I was looking at a rainsford goby which looks pretty cool, I'd love to get a manderin fish but tank really isn't big enough.

Rainsford are cute and stay out a lot, so that's a great option!! Mandarin usually starve to death unless they are trained to eat frozen.

Look what I bought home from my lfs today it's been feeding on frozen brine shrimp too which is a massive bonus! It's a type of dragonet or manderin, anyone know which species?

Sorry to hear about the dragonet.

I like your conch, though. They're cool.

It's ok it happens, I've ordered some extra lid clips from Tmc which should solve the problem, I'll have to see what the fish shop has to offer at the weekend

Just bought a pearl tipped torch coral (top of pic) is it best to keep it at top of tank or somewhere else?
