Sir, I think it's time for a bigger aquarium

By Leonard Ho - Posted Apr 24, 2015 09:00 AM
Luisgo, I think you may want to consider a new reef tank. When corals have grown to such an extent that a quarter of your 125g's front viewing panel is encrusted with SPS, it's probably time to upgrade. And then there's that massive Euphyllia colony ...

On a side note down memory lane: The SPS that is encrusting Luisgo's front glass takes me back to the mid 1990s when I first saw a picture of Julian Sprung's Acropora (A.cervicornis if I recall correctly) encrusting the glass of his famous 15 gallon "micro" reef.  These were the days when Acropora husbandry was still black magic and when we called nano reefs micro reefs.
