about the same but process is much slower as far as adding corals and fish. most corals present a large bioload per coral and if stocked to fast will result in algae outbreaks and loss. extreme lighting also. as much as 5 or 6 watts of metal halide per gallon depending on corals requirements. I ordered 30 amazon swords, 1 red tiger lotus and a mat of christmas moss from aquariumplants.com and ferts from green leaf aquariums. hopefully this will constitute heavy planting for my tank. Will post pics when I get the plants in.
