The picture above is a pretty typical single head frag, probably 2-3" or better fully deployed. Depending on conditions, it will grow pretty quickly. I have one the size of a foot ball that is over 10 years old. Easy to take care of.

That's awesome. My tank is a 55 so I think that football size will get a little large but this is def something I'm looking into. Thanks for the tips.

I just started this little frag from a bright lime green frogspawn. This picture was taken a week ago and he has grown 30%. I think it's about the same one as above.

The best position for this frag would be on the sandbed? I have 4 t5 bulbs the lighting would be okay assuming its a hardy coral?

They can grow in a broad variety of lighting. I would suggest medium lighting (200-400 PAR) which your t5's should produce at least 12-18" deep. If your tank is deeper, raise the coral up. It won't care if it's on the sand bed or wedged into a rock, it wants moderate flow, usually.

Mine is a little larger than a baseball, it has six heads. It started as 2 about a year ago. It's definitely one of the coolest corals to watch!

This is a pretty plain Jane one, but it is very hardy.
