Hello,

No other solutions instead of cut the corals ?

Cause if I do less light they will have less colors !!!

Can you post your water parameters?

Your tank looks very colorful and healthy. Once corals get that size, you'll have to frag them to avoid their chemical warfare. I'm sure there are hobbyists in your area that would love a few small pieces to put in their tanks.

My water parameters are :

Calcium : 380-420 mg/l
Magnesium : 1100-1200 mg/l
KH: 6-8
PH:7.9-8.1

NO3: 0-5 mg/l
PO4:0

Thanks for my tank !

Your water parameters are about right for the corals to have a steady growth rate. If you had higher Alkalinity and Magnesium, I think you'd see faster growth.

I don't recommend turning your reactor down just to slow down the growth rate. You may end up losing the corals you've got. Better to keep them happy and prune them as necessary.

How far are you from Basel? I used to live there when I was young. :)
