Upgraded my tank and added new scape. Want to make sure I’m putting my corals where they will be happiest.

not sure my par numbers, but I tried to make it as close to my T5s as possible.

powerhead is on the right side of the tank.

corals:

Green finger leather
Blue mushroom
Bubble coral
Duncan
Stunner chalice
Aquamarine chalice
Favia
green pavona
Green plating monti
Red and green encrusting monti
Green monti digitata X2
Green and purple leptastrea
Pink stylocoenella
Green elephant skin coral
Bird of paradise
Woolly green acro
Blood bank acro (might move to my frag tank)

things I can’t move:

two small zoa colonies on the left and right side of the arch shaped rock.
Bubble tip nem on front right white rock
Rock flower nem on right side of arch shaped rock (I tried very hard to get him out of there with no luck)

only thing I plan on adding is some macroalgae in the future.

please coral gurus have mercy on me

Thanks! I ended up gluing my monti digis kind of in the middle of the branching rock. and gluing my acro to the highest point of the arch shaped rock. . . everything else is just sitting there.

I wonder about my stylocoenella and my leptastria, both have been unhappy for a little bit despite good parameters and trying different placement.

If they have been under T5’s and are now under the LED’s they could be grumpy. Did you run any acclimation with the LED’s?
no, I just tried to get the light as close to the T5s as possible. unfortunately neither of my local stores rent PAR meters.
