I've had mine in for about 4 months and it's grown so maybe I'll get lucky but I'm naturally pessimistic so I always expect the worst.

How long do you keep your lights on and what type of lights do you have?

I have not found them easy to keep. I had heard that flowerpots for example like more turbid water and that our reefs may actually be too nutrient poor for their tastes.

They have a mouth, it's very tiny in the center.

I've looked countless times and the centre just appears to be a solid white mass, not like any other LPS I've seen.

It looks like you're doing something right. That is how Mine was looking for the first month or so. Do you have it placed low in your tank or high?

About mid level. It's composed of 4 branches, I managed to secure the very base where it's just 1 branch between my rock work, so it sort of protrudes rather than sits on the rock.
