Well considering I saved my tank from completely crashing I'd say I have 4 and 1/3 out of the 7 I had.
My snakes and Kenya tree are happy again along with the toadstool, my palys seem to be coming back but the zoa may have poofed along with the organ pipes and yellow gorg. And the blue ridge is barely hanging on thinking of getting some frags off mother and binding them to what's left.

45 corals in a 90. I was picky this time. I used to put anything and everything I got into the tank. Being part of a reef club people give you frags and then those frags tell a story about who gave it to you and at which meeting.

I was going to say between 20-30, but thought I’d just go count. Actually over 50! 150g that’s two months in after breaking down 90g. I only brought over a handful of corals from old system due to big turf algae problem.

In my new 125, I'd say I only have about 15-20 different pieces at the moment, of course only because the tank is so new. I plan to have a garden of Acanthophyllia once I can get a more stable income, and in the next month I will begin stocking it with acros finally. The only pics I have of it are pretty old, but I'll share one anyways. I plan to update both build threads in the next few days though, and I've got an LFS trip planned this week so I may update after that.

Hey, this is a cool question and fun to read the different answers. I am more of a fish keeper than a coral reefer. My coral are mostly to provide a natural looking habitat for my fish but I have 30+ coral in a 56 gallon display.

Are we asking total coral colonies or total number of different or unique colonies?

76 frags split between a 20 gallon innovative marine drop off, and a 14 gallon innovative marine peninsula. The vast majority of my frags are zoas/palys. Along with that i've got 3 mushrooms, 2 candy cane, 2 euphyllia, 2 acans, a goni, a favia, a duncan, and an anemone but that's an invertibrate.
