    Do you think they would live under three 30 watt flourecesnts(50/50, actinic, 20000k, in a 20 gallon tank with three small perculas, power filter, powerhead, live sand, live rock,(No protien Skimmer, lots of plants? Is there any varieties that are particuilarrily hardy?

    You may be able to keep a few leathers and/or mushrooms...possibly some polyps........

    toobs,
    I would change from the 20,000k bulb to a 10,000K bulb. Other than that, you should not have any problems with the mushrooms. I have raised them on less than you are planning in the past with no problems.

    yep kelly is right. shrooms seem to adjust OK. i must say they surely dont look their best under very poor lighting, but they will live and still look pretty IMO, even under your lighting. you may want to make sure you place them high on the rocks as close to the light as possible.
