    Is there anyone else here in my situation? I have an obsession for coral, most especially SPS. I have so many frags in my 60 cube that I’ve even glued some monti caps to the back glass (really cool, btw). I have them packed so close together that they probably won’t have room for them to fully spread out! Hubby says I can’t have a bigger tank. What do I do? I have a 32 that I keep a few anemones in but I’m afraid to put sticks in because of the nems. Should I risk it? Or should I rehome the nems?

    Well this is a situation we all get into whatever the size tank you have, they all fill up eventually! I have 650 litres and it’s getting pretty full

    Not many options but possibly

    1. Get a new husband
    2. Put your foot down with existing husband
    3. Just ignore husband, buy bigger tank and tell him it was a bargain you couldn’t refuse! Then buy large case of beer and offer to mow lawns or something for a while!

    If your not keen on the above maybe it’s time to oust the nems because if they start wandering the corals might not be happy!

    SPR has the only logical solutions! use the bargain gig, it usually works. If not, they tend to get over it!

    Pull out the ones you don't absolutely love anymore and trade them in at the LFS, then you have more money and more space

    I started with my 27g hex.. it got too small quickly... then i upgraded to my 60g hex... i have 33 diff corals its pretty dang full now.. and im thinking of getting a frag rack or two for the 3 back panels to hang for more corals lol.

    I have a 92g corner bowfront thatd be an awsome reef tsnk... i found odd shaped tanks looks cool for reefs... i also have a 135g 6 foot tank.. but those two bigger ones are for fresh water fish my discus angels ect.


    I wish i could trade in corals i dont like... my lfs is biased.. they take in corals from some people but me its a no i dont get it..i have a large yellow porites i dont want anymore but they wont take it or even give me 10$ even though its worth 60+
