When adding a new coral I put it in the shade so it can acclimate to the water for a week or 2 then I start moving it up slowly. Most corals will do fine wherever you put them if you very slowly acclimate them. I have mushrooms growing next to birdsnest colonies it's all about taking things slow. Too much light kills things and is alot worse than too little light.

Do you think buying and selling coral is similar to playing the stock market?
