View Full Version : Looking for coral suggestions

05/11/2017, 11:09 PM
I have a large piece of coral skeleton in the middle of my tank. Mostly moderate LED light except for the top portion, and varying flow depending on area but generally low to moderate. I'm looking for suggestions on some coral species that don't mind growing vertically. I've considered zoas but I'm afraid on a vertical plane they'd stretch and it would get unattractive. Ideally I'd like some variations in color and texture, but I realize that might be asking a lot. I'm not opposed to non-photosynthetic. I already have a sun polyp and blueberry gorgonian, so I'm used to near daily spot feedings.
I would attach pics for reference, but the file limits are too restrictive for the pics on my phone. I can add some tomorrow when my lights come back on.

Stats -
125g with 50g sump
pH 8
2-3 ppm NO3
undetectable PO4
Ca, KH, Mg within normal ranges
Life of tank - approx 1.5 years

Florida ricordea would offer some nice colors!
