I'm not sure where to ask this question but I now that I have to Q fish but what about any corals do you Q that and if so for how long if somebody can post pictures of corals in Q that would be a big help
and what about the light do I need to buy an expensief light for the Q or would a 65W coralife be good enough

Sorry for the questions
( can you tell that I"m new )

I'm supposing the "Q" is in regards to quarantine and yes, doing that with corals is a good thing as well. I got a large colony of zoanthids from the LFS a little while back and it was infested with zoanthid eating nudibranches and eggs everywhere. SPS corals have red bugs and acro eating flatworms to worry about. I recently revamped my 10g reef tank with more flow and MH lighting so that new frags of SPS coral could be placed in it for awhile prior to going to my 120g display so that I could observe for these pests.

A month QT for the corals is recommended. You will need to get better lighting than you would normally need if it were just fish in your QT. An inexpensive power compact would suffice.
