Thanks!
Cleaned it out today believe it or not, took a bucket load of coral to the LFS. Can't hardly tell any is gone.
I am getting addicted to growing weird Acros and caps. I get a real feeling of accomplishment watching those species grow.

It's more about patience and persistence. There are tanks out there that still blow mine away. But not many as healthy.

Of course those are very significant too! My favorite has been this SPS tank. Never seen a reef that can really compare IMO.

I like tanks like this also, but I tend to want some movement other than fish, so I like to mix in some LSP and soft corals. If you are careful, they will not only coexist with each other, but you can use some species to corral others that would take over if left alone.

A good example is the little Kenya tree coral from above. If left alone it would be the size of a basketball, but the surrounding mushrooms and other corals keeps its growth under control.

That kind of makes me sad. I remember diving in Hawaii 20 years ago and it was fabulous. Wasn't there stuff to see?
