Green glow=good/bad?

My mushrooms, polyps, and ricordia have a green glow under the anctitic light. Is the green glow a good or bad sign? Should it be allot or or spotty?

Thanks

It's neither good nor bad, it just is. Alot or splotchy would really depend on the species. It's nothing to worry about

Fluorescence is pretty cool.. enjoy it

that's half the point of actinic lighting...it causes many corals to fluoresce.

now, if you start glowing green...then I'd worry.

Didn't know if it was something to track. If it has x amount of fluorescence and it now is less then the stuff is dying or needed some sort of attention. Or even the other way around.
