That's exactly why I ask. Technically each polyp is a different animal living in a large colony so with less material to build with in theory (or atleast mine lol) they would have to build closer together. The tissues of the coral use more then just calcium to grow so if you kept the calcium high enough to stay alive but low enough to effect the corals consumption while keeping all other parameters in check wouldn't you have faster tissue to skeleton growth. Obviously I'm not trying to do this first hand this is more me just bouncing some thoughts around with fellow reefers haha. Also does anyone know of any good lectures/speakers I can find online for coral growth or identification

The thing is though it just won't be able to build if it wants to grow to will grow. It may grow thick and dense or thin an pourus
