The same as a regular Lobo. Not... very... fast.

Here's a good article on iodine:

Chemistry And The Aquarium: Iodine in Marine Aquaria: Part I — Advanced Aquarist's Online Magazine

The summary of the article? Just say no to dosing iodine.

1/2 inch in a week for *any* coral would be pretty amazing. I'm thinking maybe you mean expansion? Corals will vary their expansion quite a bit as they get used to their new tank, and from week to week. Actual skeletal growth is pretty hard to measure on Lobos.

Sorry... I was thinking you were talking about a Lobophyllia, and not a Lobophytum (aka ORA Loco Lobo). So I take back what I said... I don't have a clue how fast those things grow.
