    Hi everyone,

    I got my first coral yesterday, a torch coral. I am still very new to this and would just like to know your opinion. Does the coral look "okay" at the moment? I have it in a boyu tl450.

    Congrats on your first coral. Torch looks happy. It would contract if it is not happy. Enjoy the movement in your tank.

    How high is it from you'r Lights..? I had mine about 10 cm under the water line..think you need a VERY tiny bit of flow increase and then you could look into doing some additional feeding...this is what I used...be careful with the amount..

    that's what I did with my Torch in my small TL-450...
