I've had some large ones over e years. The first on is my current large softie. For size reference the tang beneath it is 4"

The next one is one I had to sell last year as it filled in the entire area it's in the picture. When I sold it it was 26"x28"


Here is a singularia I had



12" wide devils hand

18" wide rasta leather

A pink singularia that I had


And finally my 30"+ devils hand. This coral curled up at the front and back of the tank

That's true. My tank has made 2 yrs last week and my coral growth has been great. Proper lighting, regular water changes, regular coral feeding and right supplement dosing and you're good to go. 18mths ago I started dosing 15-20mls of b-ionic daily, now i'm at 108mls. My coral growth has been tremendous. For instance, my frogspawn started off 21mths ago as 3 heads, the colony has exceeded 30 heads now. I keep fragging. My green polyp toadstool started at 2.5" about 21mths ago, Its now exceeded 12".
My spaghetti leather went from 6-8" to 18" now
I've had a lot of growth on my other corals.
