    Looks good. I always prefer groups of the same type of coral rather than single specimens spread sporadically around the tank.

    Thanks!

    I agree and thats why im kinda going to group some things together. I might wait for my new lights to come in before i do anything else. Id like the corals to kinda acclimate to the lights before i move anything so if i do it now id prolly end up moving eveything again. This rics are fine because they are a lower light coral and will be fine at the bottom of the tank.

    Nice job Dana, I did something similar with mine. I think they do better in a goup than individually as well. At least that is what it seems anyway.
