Acro flow question

I just picked up a small acro frag with supposed blue tips for free from the LFS I go to. How much flow do these guys like? I have it in a fairly strong flow now but trying to make it as happy as possible! Thanks for the help. 8)

thanks for the heads up! Now all I need to do is find the right spot at the top of the tank....... Flows probably a little too much where its at now.

When first introducing the frag I would direct flow AWAY from it for a few days. Then slowly add flow. As mentioned, high and indirect flow are what they ideally like...plus high light. The addition of zooplankton will also help.

Thanks for the heads up! Ill let it sit under the HQI without much flow for a few days and then Ill see about moving it around. I added some cyclopeeze so that should help out a little!
