These are beautiful! Thank you! When you say "just run carbon" are you referring to the regular stuff in my filter?

Carbon will remove the products these corals create to fight eachother. I am not sure what is in your filter is but my guess is carbon and some sponge and biomedia. Good carbon can last a month at a time

lighting plays a big part in how they appear to us. do you run predominately blue? white? a combination?

Rhodactis shrooms (green and orange/pink) (aggressive so be careful), clove polyps (I’ve got rainbow, pink, and micro yellows), and a beautiful toadstool! I love these and they’ve been really easy for me.

I haven't bought a light yet. Still fish only and in the planning stage. Thinking of getting a Noopsyche.

Mushrooms, and green star polyps have been the easiest for me to keep. They come in a variety of colors and variations to not make it look like a boring freshwater tank

+1 Star Polyps. I have a frag of both green and purple. Can't kill them even if you try.

Seriously, lots of people seem to consider it a weed almost.
