Hello Everyone,

Does anyone have any photos of their tank with artificial coral in it please, I would like to see what artificial coral looks like before I buy any due to my tank looking a bit dull & brown.

Thanks,

Gav

Hi daniel04m , what lighting do you have on the tank ? Have you looked at soft corals , they don't have as high light requirements as LPS and SPS corals do .

Ok thanks no I haven't looked into coral at all I just assumed they were a pain to keep alive, I have 1x Aquael Retrofit Marine LED 16w  on top of my tank.

Xenia, Kenya tree, green star polyp, mushrooms and zoas are very hardy and only require very basic lights and don’t mind less than perfect water quality.

They would do fine under 2 x 16 watt LED’s.
