    How easy is it to keep Soft corals (especially Leathers) in a SPS dominated system ?

    What guidelines can you suggest to keep both type of corals happy and thriving (if any) ?

    They can be kept together.Just keep them far apart from each other to avoid any chemical warfare and stinging of corals.

    Remember that LPS and Softies thrive under high nutrients where as SPS thrive under low nutrients.
