I've run out of room in my 150 gal mixed reef tank. Some of my sps colonies are getting quite big and are taking up the best real estate in the tank. These are colonies of easy to grow acros and not too expensive pieces (that's because that's what I started out with). Now that I want to grow out some more expensive sps frags, I find that the prime real estate is located where the older colonies are. So I tried an experiment where I glued some new frags on the tips of the old colonies. I hope it works.
Anyone ever do this or have suggestions?
Thanks!

I would think, whichever coral wins the warfare, is the one that will win out.

I have many places where sticks touch each other. Sometimes the one growing over wins and continues to grow, and other times the one under wins and stop the growth of the other. It's really a crap shoot in me eyes.
