So I feel like this is obvious for aggressive corals with sweeper tentacles...give them as much space as possible. However, what about acros, zoas, and other corals that just need the space to grow? How much space do you leave them when mounting on your rocks? Do you have a rule? Is it just how you feel it? What's your plan/strategy?

They are like children that fight over toys. There is never enough room for them. They want the whole tank for themselves. My corals are way over crouded. I remove the ones that are losing or that I don't want and let the "winners" take over.

My general approach is never give them enough room and as they grow I have to remove some. Good excuse for setting up another tank.
