PostSubject: CORAL EXPLOSION!!!   Thu Apr 11, 2013 4:01 pm

Well awhile ago my fish tank was a wreck...piles of rubble and the few remains of the dead coral....in the last few weeks my tank has been slowly reviving and random coral was added and a metal halide was added to the tank. However recently, the coral and macro algae has exploded in my tank!

My mushrooms have tripled in size, my fuzzy shrooms have split into two and plan on splitting more, my macro has tooken control of a massive amount of space, and my monticap has been growing rapidly. My zoa plugs have grown quite a bit as well.

haha coral wars....I am thinking about shifting the monticap up a bit and moving the fuzzys to form a wall and maximize my room...and putting all of my normal shroms together and form yet another wall...I bet those chromises will have some fun swimming through them shroom walls.....

maybe you can slowly move your SPS up and put the shrooms underneath so they get a nice shaded spot.put that monti in a corner and put than green cap in a more opportune spot for growing.

Awesome! metal halides can do wonders for tanks. I see a Pavona decussate (fuzzy plating coral) in both your pics, is that growing well for you?

It does seem like you have some good growth there.I got that PAR meter here lets check it out and see whats the verdict.I know that it was bleaching out some montipora when it was too high in the tank.HQI halides have alot of punch and your rocking one over a 20 gallon.Now that you have good stony growth you might have to dose some calcium.I got your back though.

Hmm calcium dosing seems like an awesome idea...I had never thought about that...I should try that...

ah my fuzzy shrooms now have getting so big they are becoming a near nuisance....rather than splitting they are just getting bigger! They now think they are superior to my orange monticap (Which I suppose they are because they attempted to poison it and it parly worked!) My green monticap seems to get bigger each day as well. I hope to trade some of it soon. My camo shroom has spitting yet again, and I think my super green spotted shroom will split soon...

Bad guitarist just recently gave me a new orange shroom and a nice watermelon shroom. I decided to rearrange them and my other shrooms to make a wall....my wall of shrooms I wanted long ago is coming back to life

Here is a pic of my wall of shrooms I got going...I will update it when my shrooms are actually happy though. I recently had to screw around in my tank to move some of my fuzzys to another tank to avoid the murder of my Monticap and make room for different colors.
