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?

pretty sure the mushroom can be anywhere, use the edit button next time as well matt, no need to make a double post within 30 minutes of posting the first one :)

There are 4 - 24 watt light bulbs.
so....96 watts...which is 4.8 watts per gallon.(i think)

What is the kalvin rating? And how many antics?

Matt 02-23-2007 07:10 PM

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

I want the polyps on the top and the mushrooms sum where lower like this:
