It likes to grow on things electrically charged. Would make a good experiment. We need a aquarium "Mythbusters."

Coralline can take a lot of forms. In puget sound, coralline grows in the shape of acropora and other sps. Kind of neat :P

It probably has more to do with the type of coralline you have in your tank... All this debate over light/low light of this parameter/that parameter... It's like saying, We all have the same parameters why is my fish dieing but yours is thriving? I have algae everywhere just like you but your fish is fat and mine looks like it is going to die. The answer is the same for both the fish and the coralline, it's a different type. One guy has a Yellow Tang and the other has a Golden Butterflyfish.
All coralline needs light... but some types need almost no light. There are 7 different colors and many variants of each color. There are three families to categorize coralline and 7 sub families.

Jsmith just because you don't know something, doesn't make it a lie if they don't prove it to you... you could look for proof that you are right rather then just assuming so until proven wrong.
There are much nicer ways of requesting additional information.

I don't mind him asking me to prove it! I mean I was wrong I'n my statement and I stood corrected it was a UV submersible and not a RO submersible... So let's all just share what we all seem to enjoy together

I didn't think you minded. You and Greg seem like cheery people.
Also it's late so I may be adding emotion to a post that isn't there.

Excellent point greenmaster. Various species probably do require different parameters/conditions

I love purple up, but the stupid coralline just grows in hordes on the glass and not the rocks >>

That is such a true statement there, I just scrape from the glass onto my hand and seed it on the rocks! It works I got it covering everything

I have way better luck with coralline when using a light source that has the "shimmer" effect and a higher k spectrum. Leds and halides work best. All my t5 tanks never grew much at all. I also noticed a difference when my Nitrates and phosphate hit zero. Not zero with other algae keeping it at zero, but once my bio plastics created enough bacteria to fully consume all the nitrate and phosphate.

That has been my experience as well, although there are obviously many different strains as some grows in the absence of light.
