bioload question.

When you are calculating for bioload do you have to factor in corals and anemones into the overall amount of fish you can stock? How could you do this guess at the finished size of some corals?

Corals put very little load. Its fish that can make it more difficult. The more fish you have the more maintance needed.
But feeding fish only helps feed coral. Think of fish as part of the CUC , And 1 or 2 for eye candy. In a reef tank its all about the coral and water quality.

Corals, shrmip, snails, etc. are generally not counted toward the overall bioload calculation.
