I have a 24g Nano that has an empty rock at the top of the tank. I would really like to put a Monti Cap there. I know it would survive, but I don't want one that would brown out. Would it retain its color? It'll be no more than 6" from the surface under 80w PC.

I assume purple caps would lose its color, but would an orange/red/green one do fine (preferably orange/red)?

Ditto. I have to keep my orange monti cap in the shade in our tank to keep it from bleaching. Granted, I'm running 400W MHs, but it seems to do fine with just the indirect lighting.

no worries imo either

a green w/ purple rim would probaly brown out but still live and grow. the orange cap will not brown out, but you be fragging the heck out of it once it takes off. but im sure many reefers here would love to help you support your addiction:rolleyes:
