Overstocking?

Hi all, I have heard of overstocking with fish in a tank what about overstocking with corals?

I ask this is because I am building a reef tank and I often see other people's tank stuffs or packs with corals and that looks nice but I am worrying that will create bad water condition just like you overstock with the fish.

Any issues to concern about overstocking corals? Thanks guys.

The only problem is if you get some corals too close to others then you will have a chem war between them and also some have stingers that will harm others. It`s all about placement.

I see I see so I can have as many coral as I want as long as I have enough space.

Is this because corals do not foul water up like the fish do?

Thanks for the help I will go out now and get more and more corals.
