thrive (adjective) (throve,thriven, also thrived)
Very lively and profitable; blooming; a term often used by nubz looking for excuses on why they have something in their reef that does not belong there.
"The tangs in my 40 gallon are thriving", "All 13 fish in my pico throve until I forgot to feed them one day"

Frogspawn. After six months, now the colony is too big for my 24g...and it's sending out feelers to sting the neighbors, so it needs room. Gonna have to frag it or trade it.

Star polyps. Of course, even then I knew they'd be a weed.

Oh and yes, when you give up sex, you have some OTHER issues, not a reefing addiction. Priorities! (Sex, reefing, alcohol, everything else takes a back seat ;) )
