Yeah, definately running out of 'real estate'. I had to relocate close to 80 heads of trumpet coral and some other fast growing corals (xenia, anthelia & zoanthids) to another tank.

Many of my corals started out as small frags. As an example, fully expanded my frogspawn colony is nearly 8" in diameter (and heavy!). It began as a tiny single-headed barely grape-sized frag back in 2007:



My emerald crab made a rare appearance last night. Forgot to include it in my CUC list.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

There are actually three fish (the two azure damsels and the royal gramma). I kind of like the idea of a sparsely-populated reef tank.
