    Many thanks
    I'm in no hurry.
    I just wanted someone in my area to get a piece for future fragging
    And always looking for a carrier to chauffeur frags and hardware between members

    I meant to ask if these require different light and flow conditions to encrusting Cyphastrea?

    My tank is 24" deep. The pink branching cyphastrea is sitting right on the bottom on the left hand side. On the left side, I grow this coral under Kessil 360N , channel 1 (100%) channel 2 (100% white) and supplemented by two 54 watts T5 bulbs for spread. One blue plus and one super actinic. I would say they like the same light condition as encrusting Cyphastrea. More important, this Cyphastrea need very good current flow to do well. Hope this answer your question.

    It does...thanks, very helpful! I have pretty much the same light setup (Kessil360+T5) except I only run about 50% white.
    I'm curious, do you run with 100% white to get better growth, or is it just because you like the look?

    With a 24" inch deep tank and with so many species of acropora growing together in harmony , the Kessil 100% white light helps the bright light loving corals. On top of all these on the right side is a MH 400 watt radium power by a PFO ballast pushing out 475 watts of power. My lighting is truly a hybrid lighting.
