    This colony was just a frag a year ago, now it has gotten so big it started growing out of the water, once it couldn't go up any farther it started to thicken up, it was pretty much blocking all the light to anything below it.  I saved a good chunk of it, but most of it is going in the prop tank, until i can find someone who wants it.  Hopefully i can get some other corals to grow that big now that it is out of the way.
    Here is a pic, Im surprised it came out all in one chunk, my tank looks a lot brighter on that side now, the corals that were below this monster are probably really happy to see it go.

    LOL, I assume those funky tips are where the coral grew out of the water?

    I haven't had any grow out of the water yet, but I have had them grow too close to the glass for my Mag-Float to get by them. The bigger problem that I'm having is the corals growing into eachother!

    No problem guys, i have a bunch of it in my prob tub, it will more than likely be pretty brown by the time you get it but it should bounce back in no time with a little TLC.
