But I'm so deep in the shrooms haha.
On a real note. After my table upgrade I am keeping my original 2 tables going to do some tenuis, torches and chalice.
Are you going with some lowboys for the upgrade? And that sounds like a cool idea! I'm on the lookout for some lowboys for my chalice table. Keep us updated and make a new thread for when you use your old tables for those corals?

Yes I'm definitely converting my original 2 table system into tenuis and torch garden eventually. Going to have to have some chalice. Tbh chalice are probably my favorite coral!
Man I'm still on fence about the lowboys. Currently looking into other options with a little more water coverage. Feeling like 16" is where I'm going to need to be as I'm going to need somewhere to place some of the monster mom shroom colonies at some point. I can always build up for sticks.
Some of my mom shrooms are pushing 6-7" easy. And the rest are quickly catching up!
Those are 3" discs and 3/4" squares on my racks for size comparison:D

yeah, same, chalice corals are my favourite... so beautiful!! Have you looked at large hydroponic tables? idk if they would be deep enough but I think they would be a good look at. Also beautiful shrooms as always! I only have 2 - an in interstellar and a biohazard/plutonium bounce shroom. I want more, but there are so many other things I want!!

Yes I am also looking at the deep hydro tables. I think eye catching corals uses them on there coral farms.

I think those would be a good option if u could find one. I also think a lot of companies are using them now?

I bet alot of farms are using them. One of my lfs has them set up in back for frag grow outs. I'm leaning towards more of something I can comfortably put fish in and cover as well as look at.
My tub tables are working well enough just not much to look at lol

oh yeah definitely, fish jumping would be an issue so having a cover would be important. And your tub tables were a good start, now it's time to upgrade lol!

Found this in one of the $10 bins today (price still on bag). It's some sort of yellowish color tenuis.

This one came from the $20 bin and I didn't include it in the other set since it's kind of hidden behind the rockwork and is hard to take a pic of.

What’s the 2nd one?
I got that from local reefer a few years back. Broke down my tank and another reefer held onto it for me and I got it back awhile ago. I know it came out of TGC, he bought the colony when it came in. I call it FlyCrazy because it came from local member fly5150.

Came in around 2017. It's still got some coloring up to do it like higher nutrients and I'm super low right now. Here is the center section, it gets those super nice pink rings around the coralites
