This is stunning!
Repeats to self: I do not need a nem tank. I do NOT need a nem tank. Your post is not helping my resolve. 😂
Haha. Yeah I have thought about it too. There are 2 in there actually. My original split about 6 months ago. One is the size of a large dinner plate and the other is right behind but I think it’s more it doesn’t have room to open up all the way. It’s a Rose bubble tip but has never really bubbled for me
 
Awesome to see all the growth, very cool. That rock formation you started with really makes the coral look so dramatic imo. Looks really nice. I'd love to do a build like this next time around making my own stand and everything. There's no way I'd trust myself to do so tho. Thanks for sharing, my tanks only 5 months old hope it looks a fraction as good as this in a years time

You don't have a build thread @Integrity you should consider it!

Did some trimming, relocating, and added some rock for corals that are in QT now.

Birds nest was almost 10” across looking top down. It was shading my frogspawn so it got a trim in the front

Monti was growing over my pipe organ. It’s a bad before picture

Another Monti growing into an acro.

My failed attempt to remove some of the monti. Going to have to figure something out to contain it. Removal doesn’t seem like an option.

Regretting the monti placement on non removable rocks

Made some new rocks the same as the rest of the tank. Marco power and thin superglue.

Structure was meant to contain the nem…it didn’t work

A new sleeping spot. Yellow fin fairy found it the first night.
