Weekly water changes are the number one growth rate increase that I have seen from my experience.

Those water changes are pushing phosphate levels down. It is this level IMO that inhibits growth, but too low and there are other corals that will suffer. Kind of a balancing act. I have found I am generally okay in the .05 - .07 range. Once they start dividing,they can grow fast, but sometimes it takes awhile for the coral to get "comfortable."
