Blue-polyp birdsnest taking off

Picked this little guy up at a frag swap for $10 about 6 weeks ago..... he just started popping new tips last week.

Tell me about it!!! Got my mouth watering.....

As soon as that started popping, I noticed an immediate difference in my 2-part dosing....... I've got a feeling that's going to be a hungry little hippo. Being in a nano, it may be getting fragged sooner than a year..... I won't let it get too out of proportion.

Wow must be a calc/alk hog if you already noticed a difference. If you run out of space on the rocks, there's always the walls .

I count 35+ new tips in the pic, and that's just this side that you can see..... every one of those is sucking down nutrients.

If I run out of space, I've always got the tops of the powerheads, or get a few more MagFloats and start stringing rocks between 'em......

I have yet to see a SPS on a powerhead and that would have to be a very strong magfloat!Haha An upgrade would just be easier. Don't see too many people saying their excuse for upgrading was that their corals were getting to large and not their fish!

Already got the upgrade excuse covered...... This is my learner/seed tank. I've got an empty 150 sitting down in the basement!! May be a couple years before it happens, but everything I'm doing now is gearing toward that..... already set up the 150gpd RODI, got my BRS dosing pumps, eyeing up reef controllers, etc, etc.
