Depending on the coral it usually takes about a good year before it gets into colony size, mini colonies can be grown within 6 months. My tank has been up for 2.4 years now so the growth spurts were during the second half of the first year due to new tank trying to establish itself, it slowed down all the way till not too long ago I started to "feed" the tank it picked up again.

I appreciate the nice comments, keeps me grinding through these nice summer weather and still make time for the tank.

It's a wolverine look alike. I did not know the exact species though.

Looking great as always. Every time I read through an update on this thread I wish you lived closer purely for trading purposes.

Gorgeous Rich!!!

Have you thought of selling carbon credits with the amount of CO2 that the corals have bound into their skelies.
