    Giant corals

    These are the 2 largest corals I have in my tank, they have caused me some aquascaping nightmares; they are too nice to not keep though- just thought id share.(taken with a phone so not great quality)

    You weren't kidding about them being bigger than you hand, that Scoly looks like it could eat your arm. The brain too, that is massive!

    yes they are a good size, and as we speak they are expanding more after feeding the tank. if i had the coral leaning completely against the rock it would expand even more but then unfortunately it would smother corals. i have lost a couple corals because they get buried underneath it and i dont notice.

    Massive and beautiful not hard to tell they are well looked after. Great job how big were they when you get them? were they frags and how long did it take you to get them to that size?

    the meat coral i had for almost a year- hes done very well, maybe doubled his size and the gonio was purchased in december it just didnt extend as much as it does now, so not really grown just is still alive and hasnt receded any which is great

    your not doing anything wrong at all, it might just be the flow, yours is very fleshy and fat so it is a happy coral regardless!
