    So, my tank has had live stock (3 fish in total) for just under a month now.

    2 Perculas and a midas blenny. 1mx0.5mx0.5m tank. 3 t8 lights 2 white, 1 blue.

    I want to know if can can stock any LPS or softies (i have some rics and brown and green star polyps that came on my rock and are doing well)

    So given my setup and lights, is there anything i can stock at the moment? For anything you suggest, please also let me know if there are feeding requirements, calcuim requirements and what other care is required.

    Thanks for your help:)

    dogstar, my advice would be to upgrade your lighting to atleast T5's before introducing any other corals.
    Ca - 380 - 420
    Alk - 6-8 DKH
    The rest in terms of flow and lighting depends on the specific coral ;)

    thanks Mekaeel. I guess for now this will have to be a fish and live rock only tank.
