Few months more growth and this could be TOTM.

I agree, a few months of good growth and you could be TOTM in my book.

Take about 80% of the corals out, let them grow in and call it good

Looks like a fish store tank to me with a ton of hot items forsale.

my 2 cents,
nice sweet corals, just way to many of them

Thanks guys for the compliments.
Feeding is done very easily. I turn off my pumps and drop coral frenzy in 2-3 times a week and leave the pumps off for an hour or so.

Yes I agree its alot of frags and personally really hate that look but its the only way to get some of the morphs I want. So a year of growth and it will be more of how I like it.

Tank Specs
Aquatinics 14 bulb 6ft fixture. 10 ATI Blue Plus, 2 UVL Aqua Suns, 2 UVL Actinic WHites
1 Vortech Pump
50 gallon fuge with an Octopus 2000 Recirc Pump and a barracuda return pump

Wow!
Are coral frenzy feedings sufficient for such big corals, as scolymia? Mine ate a lot, and a meaty pieces.

Do your snails and hermits move everything on their way?
Mine ruined any visibility of order, made in the tank...

Thanks.

Whoa!

I agree with letting the frags grow out. A bunch of frags in the sand bed does look like a LFS sale.

No fish???

so what'd you think of coral frenzy. I switch between feeding live phyto and a mysis/cyclopeeze every other day. Feeding acans can be difficult with the fish in my tank and was thinking about this or reef chilli.

I really like the coral frenzy. I have been using it for over a year. It has alot better ingredients than reef chili so I went with it over chili. Occasionally when I actually have time I will target feed mysis but that is few and far between.

If people would sell the cool corals instead of frags my tank wouldnt be so frag filled. lol

Any other fish additions? Im gonna add some more fairy wrasse and some anthias
