I’ve been wrecking my brain trying to figure out the best place to permanently mount my corals. I’m running 2 AI Prime 16 HD’s at about 65% intensity using Saxby’s light schedule.

  • Frogspawn
  • Graffiti War Coral

I did some par readings, the numbers look good, 75-130 on the sand bed and lower rock structures, 150+ higher up. What do you guys think are good spots to place them?

I do the same as @Jeto2004 !

Place the corals in a spot where you will like them and see if they open up against the flow/lighting. I separate my tank into "sections" with montis in higher flow sections of the tank, euphyllia garden in the moderate flow areas, and more softies/mushrooms in the lower flow/lighting parts of the tank. Hope that helps and nice scape!

Happy Reefing :) !
