    1 thing I dont like about reefing.

    Your reef looks beautiful it has grown and grown for a few years and now your faced with a decision.
    Today was that decision to tear apart 2 colonies with an 18 inch spread each. I love large colonies but at some point
    you either cut back or except having only a few colonies. Completely redoing a 350 to and now will have some
    more room to go down to my reef store and load up with new stuff. Some may think what a good problem but
    if you don't change eventually your tank will be a junk yard.

    It is a tough decision, but a good one to have...at least compared to so many others posts where things are struggling. All the best on the reboot

    Oh boy David, tough indeed! Which two colonies was it? Yours are all so stunning!

    There are alot of folks who would love some frags out of your tank! Im sure many folks will be keeping an eager eye on the "for sale" forum hoping for a post from you really soon!

    And here i thought the problem is going to be buying more corals than you can fill in your tank.

    Just think of it as a flower bed full of perinnals if you don't take out a bunch of it and share it with friends not only your plants will deteriorate but you loose the joy of sharing with friends!
