They look great. I can't wait until I get some corals myself! Do you target feed at all? I'm still clueless when it comes to feeding corals. Still doing my homework on them.

Looks great. I love the toadstool! The Seabe looks a bit white. Is it getting enough nutrients? Good luck with the new additions.

I love toadstool too, mushrooms aren't my favorite, but I know a lot of people enjoy them. The only one's I'm fond of are Ricordia Florida.

Their main source of energy comes in the form of light. This anenome will need over 5 watts/gal. of lighting (preferablly MH) in order to survive long-term. What type of lighting do you have now? You can suplment some nutrition by feeding silversides or krill for the time being. Good luck...Lando

I have Satellite Duals with Dual Actinic (420nm/460nm) and Dual Daylight (6,700K/10,000K) bulbs which is 4x65 watts on a 50 gal tank. I was hoping this would be enouh.

That is still a bit on the low end for this type of anenome. YOu should be okay as long as your supliment with silversides or something similar.
