    Just want to know if a torch coral will be alright under the PC lighting in my 130L boyu nano?

    its 2 x 24W PC's (I know, quite weak). All my softies are doing well as well as an open brain. Would a torch be alright under this lighting?

    PC = powercompact. It's a small double tube'd compact fluorescent light that comes in lower wattage and lengths for nano sized tanks ;)

    Smashingly! Only prob is I moved it yesterday, clowns found it and started to host. So i've moved it again in a hope they'll leave it alone. So colourful!

    One of my clown pairs host in my torch and it takes a bit of time but the coral does get used to it.
