The answer is to research the fish before you buy and not get anything that will outgrow your tank. Unless you definitely plan to get a bigger tank later.

Unfortunately too many people still go about this the wrong way.

i would just get a bigger tank. it is a new reason to get a bigger one.
A 46 gal bow front (Soft coral) reef tank with a 10 gal sump. And a 30 gal (SPS and Clam) reef tank hooked up to the sump of the 46 so they share water.
