I have a 220 gallon FOWLR with plenty of flow . I am not inclined toward Corals I liked teh look of GSP would like to know the follwong

1) Can GSP grow in a FOWLR with high nitrates in 10-30ppm
2) How much lighting it needs
3) What fished eat them?
4) Is it hardy
5) Does it have a any negative impact in a FOWLR
6) Also can I use regular instant ocean salt with out dosing?

1) Yes
2) low to moderate
3) none that I know of
4) Quite
5) Grows extremely fast (seen by some as a negative), also would make your tank no longer FOWLR

yes

2) How much lighting it needs
How deep/high is your tank? GSP doesn't really require very high lighting though.

3) What fished eat them?
I don't know of any that will eat GSP

4) Is it hardy
Yes

5) Does it have a any negative impact in a FOWLR
Possibly overgrow/overrun your rock scape once it takes hold.

Yea, it isn't picky. Dosing is only needed for tanks as demand starts to grow. It really isn't a high demand or stony coral so likely wouldn't see a massive demand for much from it.
