The only advice I can give is to try them out in different places and observe. Obviously, softies & LPS
go lower (or more shaded) than SPS
, but there are no "rules" for it. I usually try to gauge where to start things out based on my lighting compared to where I got them from. This is a lot easier when dealing with fellow hobbyists. They usually can give you a good idea of where to start them. If you get them from an LFS
, it can be a crap shoot since the coral may not have been in a stable environ for quite some time. Where ever they seem happiest are where they should be.
