    Hi All,

    I'm looking at maybe creating a soft coral only tank.

    Please post your views on this an different softies I should look at. The reason why I'm feeling a little unsure is I feel that there isn't enough colour in a softies only aquarium.

    Please prove me wrong

    Thanks all

    Ps. Post plenty pics

    A softie tank can look amazing...with the right lighting (as with any tank).
    You can mix it up with rock flower nennies and some clams. Can result in a stunning tank when mature.

    The problem is finding those colours. Where would one get them. Generally the LFS doesn't have such an array of colour with softies

    Softie only tank could look great.
    If you avoid the usual brown soft corals it will be colourful. Things like green/yellow leathers, green nephthea, and then of course bright zoas and rics.

    Even the standard colours can result in a spectacular tank, have a look for this tank on the forum:
    The Zoa Garden, Lost City of Atlantis
