    You can mix incompatible corals like that in the same tank by creating high flow near the top of the tank were the lighting is stronger and creating areas of lower flow in the lower levels of the tank were the lighting is not as strong. The mushrooms and zoas you have listed would do well in a stop like that. The blastos would do better with a little more lighting and flow so you could place them mid level in the tank.

    The birdnest is just about the easiest of all the SPS to keep and would need to be at the top of the tank were the lighting and flow is strongest. However, it does grow fast and assuming you would be keeping stable parameters, you could be fragging it every month or so.

    Check out the AquaC Ramora HOB skimmers. They are one of the better HOB skimmers that I have used.

    For lighting, I would have two suggestions. For LEDs a single unit of a AI SOL or Vaga, or a good quality 4 bulb T5HO fixture.
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    Would you suggest I stick with those powerheads that I chose or, will other ones be better? The ones I have no do a 425 GPH. Should I get one with less power for the low level corals, or get one bigger for the uper corals?

    Also trying to look at Live sands to go with....Thinking a 40 pound bag would be good.

    I'm not too sure about the powerheads, I would have to have a better idea about the flow created by your skimmer or HOB refugium before I could make any recommendations

    However, I would not recommend "live sand" at all. That will most likely only add ammonia and nutrients to your water and, IMO, is not worth the cost of buying the stuff.

    I would just pick a nice marine sand that you like. Actually, many people have great success with bare bottom tanks (no substrate). You might want to consider that option as well

    I"m currently looking into changing my Penguin Biowheel into a HOB refud...Hopefully to avoid spending 75+ for an HOB ref....Been looking at forums and seeing the ways they did it. At least it lets me use the the the damn thing...
