    Recommendation for 40” x 23” x 23” softie and LPS tank.

    Hello all. I was debating what lights would be good for a 40 x 23 x 23 tank that only houses softies and LPS, I don’t plan to go SPS in this tank. 1x Radion Xr30 G5 2x Radion Xr15 G5 or ??? I would love to hear the reef2reef opinion on how to light this tank. ‘thanks in advance to all.

    Toadstool not standing straight

    My toadstool used to stand up tall, but now it’s stalk is almost horizontal. We haven’t made any changes to the tank, and have had the toadstool since it’s head was about the size of an egg. Is it too top heavy? Not enough light? Too close to the xenia?
