    My buddy wants to put some birdsnest and monti frags in my frag tank. Im ot sure that the light will sustain them. Im looking for great growth right now, he just needs a place to store them until he can get a buyer for them. What do you think?

    As far as SPS go, I've had a lot of success keeping birdsnest under lower light, and montis should do fine, as they require lower lighting than most other SPS. Some people manage to kill every birdsnest they try to keep, so maybe I was lucky with mine. Keep in mind that even if you can keep them successfully, their colors will likely change under your lighting, which could impact his ability to sell them.

    Very true. But around here no store really sells much sps so i bet they could be poop brown and someone would buy them. They are pink nests and red montis. What the going prices on these?

    $10-15 bucks a piece for colored up pieces. Thats for and 1.5" frag of the BN or 1" square for the monti. Nobody wants browned out frags $5 tops for those ones.
