Oh ya i almost forgot if you relly dont want to spend alot of money you could keep a mantis shrimp. They are the most agresve marine carnivors i know of. For a mantis tank you can use regulare flourecent bulbs or even incendecent,a powerfilter, sand, and some live rock. You can feed them live crabs or frozen food and watch them ripp them apart. They have these arms that they smack there prey with at a super speed that the force exerted has been compared to a 22 rifle. They have even been known to break aquairum glass!

caferacermike is correct. your corals might look like they are doing good for now, but could be dieing from lack of light. When I went from 265 watts on a 120gal to 700watts for a 120 gal the corals at first didn't like it and I thought I did something wrong. Now they are the happiest I have seen They are just full of life. I not telling you to go out a buy the most expensive light, but you should be pushing more watts through the water. I am going to put the 24" coral life on my sons 20gal nano and start putting my leathers and poylps in there. I would never recoccomend a 50/50 to anyone that is keeping more then mushrooms or some types of leathers.
