Coral, shrimp, crabs, and snails have a very light bioload which I think their tank can handle. The clown was added 2 weeks ago aswell. And their tank was cycled about a month ago. TBH I think they aren't rushing, they have no dead livestock or ammo or trites. But I wouldnt add a fish for another 2 weeks.

Just thinking in the future, im not going to buy it this week, or even this month.

Plus, after ordering this light, we will have a nice cash balance of $0.00...lol

I realize all this. I've been following the threads just as you have. My opinion is based on the same information that you just posted.

They do get huge, eventually. Many corals do. Google some fragging videos if you're curious... you'll need to learn how to do it eventually. LOL

Haha, i actually saw one last night on a different thread..he fragged a frogspawn! It was pretty cool!

Does a toadstool shoot off different parts? Or does it just grow up and out as one piece? Im not sure how i'd frag somthing like that in the future..

I've got a full grown leather in my 25g tank that frags himself every 1-2 months. It's the one at the bottom right

That dude is sick! Very nice! How do you frag him? Does he shoot off another section?

Also, are leathers sps? Or lps?

Leathers are softies.

That's a nice leather, but it is not "full grown" and it's not going to stop growing. The dropping pieces off of itself is just a method of propagation. It doesn't mean that it is fully grown.
