I just think the more you pack in there you need to research extensively. Some corals will sting or kill others when fighting for property. They are like fish in some respects. Many will co exist peacefully, others wont, so placement is important. Water changes are very important and the use of a good reef salt mix. The more corals you have, the more they deplete the essential elements in the water, making water changes very important. They need the elements in the salt mix to build themselves.

Torches are absolutely awesome. Mine started as a head or two at most and now has 7.

I do 10% water change every week. I buy saltwater from my LFS and the only problem I've run into is that my salinity gets high. Other than that my parameters are perfect. Good luck

So it's day 3 and looks like this. Will only extend a cm at best. Any ideas how long it will take to be happy enough to extend fully?
