I have not added much in the way of corals lately. Only new corals are the orange lobo, teal blastro and a small piece of the obligatory kryptonite candy canes.

 

My St Thomas shroom has been pissed off lately. Somehow my large under waterworld Cookie Monster chalice flipped onto the St Thomas. Luckily it neither coral was killed. The St Thomas actually split from the incident and I traded the split for a large green carpet nem for my anemone tank.

Here are a few corals I snapped pics of4B19AB22-2057-433F-867C-31C16C00ED92.thumb.jpeg.ef2ddbb15bab1fe15eff2ca15c10af08.jpeg1071C7D2-5213-4D05-9E99-E5644DEA85D4.thumb.jpeg.1ebfb5854755349a9b81ea05bd5cb915.jpeg8DD11775-8A50-4CC9-BF81-F1205299FC37.thumb.jpeg.f7ed90db4d1fc3a88c8023925dc60d83.jpeg110A8188-E8D8-4EBE-A018-C8EB13B9A0C4.thumb.jpeg.61fc4fe16209566f9e00849865e255a8.jpeg75B93CC8-5294-466F-B0A7-D618DEEFC8F3.thumb.jpeg.60ea7da5a952bcbb034c32e3e8787c4b.jpeg7D203324-035C-43E7-9791-C3065286BDC9.thumb.jpeg.7e7f2a87d3bdad1d2aa649c37ed87b4d.jpeg95A5EACE-1DF7-4C50-BBA7-4A9844C3ED97.thumb.jpeg.78fa87d7fbd09db08f2a0e959a507fc0.jpeg

I have to say that tank has been going pretty well so far. I have been doing weekly 5 gallon water changed with Tropic Marin Pro salt.  I have not does the tank with anything other then Vibrant which has helped with an small algae issue I had pooping up. Tank has been getting slow growth and some of the corals are just coloring up while others are still a little dull. I will start testing the water more often to see if I need to start dosing Tropic Marin all for reef. I used it once before on another tank and had amazing results with it.

I am just going to keep plugging along with the tank, I don’t know if I will be adding much more coral to this tank I might just place what I have and let it grow in.

I think your tank has a nice assortment of coral and letting it grow in is a good plan. Most likely at some point when at the LFS you will see something that pops and add it. I think too often we all want the full tank look and put more coral in than needed then they fight.

This tank ended up with all the corals I had in my larger 36x18x18 because for some reason that went through a phase when I tried to implement a kalk stirrer with Kalk dosing. I took everything out and filled the Waterbox. I think I will actually mount some of the corals as nothing in there is mounted and may take some pieces out to open up space.
