29 gallon coral reef move.

Most stoney corals will convert to brown algae when receiving too little light or the wrong frequency. This is a survival mode for the coral, but they can grow fine at this color. Once the light changes to more intensity and/or the right color spectrum, the brown will give away to more colorful algae. High nutrient levels can also brown corals.

Here is a head (16" across) of tabling acro. This one is going from brown to pink as a result of my lowering the organic load and increasing calcium as these guys gobble it up.

I absolutely love that piece of yours! I could see it putting a serious dent in calcium in my 40 breeder! Lol

It has a twin sitting out of camera shot. That's a lot of rock to create out of seawater.

Yes I remember reading that on your thread. That is impressive! I would be very proud of that beauty.

Some things grow, some grow then die, some don't make it at all. After decades I still don't fully understand why in some cases. I've just learned to enjoy what works and not beat myself up on those that don't work. Each coral is its own little world.
