what kind of corals? and light? oh and 14hrs just might be over doing it. shoot for a more real life amount of photo period. i use 10 and my corals are doing great.

how many watts per gallon will you have? i suggest to get at least 3-4wpg. shrooms and xenias and zoanthids it'll look good.

You may want to rethink using that acrylic tank. Those, especially Minibows, scratch very easily. Most people end up switching to like a 5.5G.

But, you still see those setup very nicely. I want you to check out this site:
7 Gallon Forums
It is very good with that topic, and everyone seems to know what they are talking about.
