Would this setup Work?

It's a 20 gallon Nano
Currently housing 1 Ocellaris Clownfish and many Snails and Crabs.
I have 22lbs. of Live rock.

And I would like to add this:
Flower / Ricordea Mushroom, Green

and Colony Polyp, Super Colored

I would like to have it look like this:

Could the Mushroom Be set on the Sand?
Does it need to be on the Live rock?

There are 4 - 24 watt light bulbs.

1 Antic and half of the normal light is antic also.
so that is 36 watt antic.



The bulbs don't say anything about the kalvin rating.i will check again.
(yes I Know what it is)

well im pretty sure that would work, only soft corals though as 4 wpg isnt high. CP lights are normally 10,000k, wherever you want to put the mushrooms go ahead. I think mushrooms can go anywhere but the polyps have to be on rock. Hope that helped
