Lots of LR with Coraline and some time. Basically mother nature does the rest if you have good tank stat's and water flow.

Maintain correct CA level and regular WC,s will make it grow like crazy.

how often do you change your water? what is your calcium? KH? how much flow do you have? Do you maintain a steady temprature?

Calcium and Water Flow make the biggest difference I've seen / heard. Some of the more salty dogs might be able to validate this.

450 should be plenty. I am stumped. maybe an excessively low KH? thats also called ALK. BTW. Your KH should be around 8-10 DKH american thats between 136 ppm and 171 ppm. But calcium should be the biggest driving force behind corraline growth. I don't mean to sound stupid but do you have a source of corraline algae in your tank? it needs to be introduced to grow.
