    IMO a tank is fully stocked with coral when there is no more physical space to put it without it harming other coral or it self. I've seen successful tanks so packed with coral that not any live rock or sand is exposed at all

    can never have too much coral, you can always trim back once they start touching!

    I can stil see rock and sand, so your not over stocked

    You'll just have to allow for some space for your corals to grow into, and watch for signs of the corals damaging each other.
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.
