    Hi all

    I have a frag of Greenstar polyps and will be getting a xenia frag. I currently have 2*54W 8500K osrams lighting the tank and 4 fish in there for about 2 weeks. all perimeters are fine. Can i add the corals in? If i can how many hours a day should they get light for? Tank has now been running for about 3 months.

    Yip you can add in. Run you lights for about 10 hours a day.

    Definitely... I think most people don't think/realize... it's probably easier to add the soft corals before you even add the fish.
