    Hi All

    Just a quick question

    Is it OK, to do a Coral only tank for a while, and will the coral thrive and survive?

    Just want to make sure before trying? ;)

    I think its possible, you just need to make sure you feed them as there will be no fish poop for food.

    My display tank is coral only and is a mix of mostly sps, then some lps and softies. I feed Reef snow every Sunday and Wednesday and the growth rate is exceptional. I am thinking they might be growing more due to lack of fish, or perhaps a combination of constant levels and reef snow.
