    Just got this guy a few days ago. Where should I put it in terms of flow/light level? I've got 400w halide and thinking of placing it on the outskirts low on a rock structure here (lower right crevice):

    Yup, Id agree on the sand bed with low to moderate flow.

    Thanks guys! I don't have a sand bed but will place it low on the rock as I can.

    Def on bottom, I would actually start them partially shaded under your rock work and slowly move them out. Remember those came from a t-5/led tank and will need a bit of time to acclimate to MH lighting.

    Thanks Matt! I have them under my main frag rack at the moment. I'll move them under the rock as suggested and then put it under one of the over hangs.
