Corals are getting thick in there!

think its about time to get a calcium reactor. Atleast once a month I'm throwing cuts out of monticap and some lesser expensive acros. I've must've setup about 11 different tanks since the beginning of the year, and never took time out for myself so. Once everything settles down I'll be in good shape to start getting my larger system plumbed. I bought a custom sump, another ati dimmable reefbrite hybrid, gigantic royal exclusive skimmer, 2 100 gallon water containers that are being plumbed tomorrow.

Ive spend tons of time and money into this hobby but nothing would ever amount to this. Piece is ALOT of dollars but I'm just gratefull to have it. Theres not a single piece like it. Colony is basically a jd grafted with a budgie smuggler. Orange/crimson with red polyps, the green/maybe graft has blue polyps.

This is the growth tips off the colony. I tryed getting the hole piece but it's best to have not just incase. My buddy believes hes the only one that has this type of acro, and it's best to be in both hands.
Super slow grower
Being excited over an acro like this definitely keeps the hobby exciting for me. Tank Is 4 years running guys!
