    Default Duncan vs. sps?

    I have a Duncan up top surrounded by various sps. A slimer, birdsnest and a milli. It's one Duncan, but it's growing pretty fast and there's only about 2" on either side for growth.

    Q: Can the Duncan touch the sps without damage or do I need to move things? Anybody have their's right in the thick of their sps without problems?

    The duncan will lose the battle especially against the milli.

    I have duncans next to dendros and zs but no sps. Its not going to win against sps, especially a Milli, so I'd move it

    O.k. I moved all the sps from that area and left it in the middle of a 4" diameter open space. Sure looks empty, lol.

    Thanks Blu

    Sps doesn't always win, I had a sps colony get knocked over into my Miami chalice last night and one of the tips landed right in the chalices mouth. It had melted (the sps) before I saw it and there was a big gobb of goop around 6 of the chalices eyes. I tried to blow it off but the chalice wouldn't let go. I figured both had melted some but got up this morning and there is nothing wrong with the chalice. So sometimes lps does win....

    lol, just when I think I've got it figured out, nature throws a curve.
