I doubt it will take off that fast, but I have no doubt that 2-3 months from now you'll have some killer growth shots for it (and some others too I'm sure)

SPS growth is hard to predict unless you are familiar with that exact coral. I've had two of the same coral and one grow faster than the other, probably due to a flow or lighting difference...though minimal at best.
A good point is how the starlight acro in my tank actually grows faster than my pocilloporas.
Though even with that said, nothing is faster than a birds nest when it comes to SPS. The green tip in my tank is just massive, to the point I wish it wasn't there anymore.

I agree. Sps growth rates depend on so many factors and trying to guesstimate how fast a coral will grow is pointless. However birdsnest grows like a weed haha

A couple questions. First, does anybody fee their sps? If so what? I'm contemplating broadcast feeding them when I feed the fish. I've also been thinking about removing the koralia 425 and just running the mp10. Could the koralia be hindering the flow from the mp10?

I spot feed all my corals once a week, usually the day before my water change. I use reef roids and really like it.

I can't really say anything about the powerheads though. I wouldn't think the koralia would have any effect on the vortechs power though.

Thanks Oscar, maybe I'll start feeding them. The koralia just takes up room and I feel I don't need it but idk.
