Hi, just wondering, i've done some research on it and i know these corals and their needs well, but i was just wondering if all of it "qualifies" as a lagoonal biotype?

Livestock:

-Xenia

-Several "Meat Polyps"

-Plate corals

-colt coral

-various shrooms

-frogspawn

-anchor

-Capnella (soft coral)

-2 non yellow leather corals

-various button, moon, and yellow polyps

-Green star coral (encrusting)

-Fox coral

-tounge coral

and now the tricky ones:

-Red cap (monti?)

-maxima and squamosa clam


I have 250watt halides several pc's, intense lighting

What goes contrary to this biotype is the high flow, but i feel that letting detritus accumulate on the sand or behind or on LR will be more detrimental to the corals than having them adjust to slightly increased flow rates.

I know this is a dumb question, but just bare with me and i'd love to hear any thoughts, thanks!

They'd wake you up at night too. They always jump and turn so they make a louder plop when they hit the water!
