    Hey all,
    Just cleared out a section of my tank. The area receives medium-high flow and medium to high light. Are there any LPS you think could thrive in this area.

    All of my current LPS are in Low light, low flow and seem to be doing okay.

    I don't want to turn this area into a mushroom/zoa forrest.

    Thank you.

    You can read otherwise, but I've had pretty good success with lobos and symphyllia under conditions of medium flow and light; they do seem to like somewhat cooler temps and are aggressive.

    Hard to beat colors and price points.

    This guy is sitting in the same conditions as my nem and some sps. It has been growing really well lately.

    Here is its proximity to the sps.

    That's pretty. Is that an echinata?
